Definitely not. :-) What I do see as a weakness is that we rely on a
handful of core developers to keep up this level of support when we
could better tap the great potential within the community. In fact I'd
rather see the core developers spending more time being proactive
designing new features and improvements (like improving performance,
scalability, etc.) than reactive analyzing user issues when large
parts of that work could be distributed.
