 This argument makes some sense (if a bit overblown) - we do seem more
concerned about not updating than not releasing in the first place -
e.g. while its true we delayed systemd - the general noise level
suggests it was still not  solid enough ... once its released 'core'
components get less love coz making changes is bad ...

 This seems a bit odd ... we're cutting edge - but if the cut smells
then its too bad ...

  I still strongly advocate for a rolling release - where single large
core changes can be serialized if need be into the testing repo for as
long as it takes to stabilize them (or pulled back out as a unit) - and
smaller improvements and bug fixes can continue unimpeded ... now we
could be truly leading edge.
