I think that's a non-argument as it is common practice for people to 
work with the latest trunk version and in practice we have often 
recommended users to do so (a credit to the stability of the code and 
quality of commits).

e.g. Erik's post from;#30227

This decision is therefore not just one that will effect users in 2007 
but more likely as soon as we decide a 1.5 commit takes place.
