Indeed.  And frankly the longer the "QA" cycle, the less interest the
community will have (seems to have) in resolving bugs from the pending
feature release.  People move on, naturally, to the next feature they
want to work on.

Frankly this is the reason that I feel like we are still waiting to ship
4.1.0.
