Well unless a bunch more people want to volunteer to test them, you'll
have a flaming-torch-and-pitchfork mob of QA people on your hands. =) We
already spend 8 months of the year on a constant test/rebuild/test
cycle; we get 2 months each cycle to do...pretty much everything else.
If we start trying to ship N.1 images we will likely be spending about 8
months of every 6 month cycle on release validation (if you see what I
mean). Count me out.
