Not to channel Andrew, but rather to offer my own viewpoint (and +1
his comment ;-)):
"If it ain't tested it ain't supported". With the commercial distros
the testing would
have to come from those who can afford the licensing fee. This has its impact on
the community of the project since at that point we're basically
making it impossible
for enthusiast and volunteers to validate their own patches.
