i completely agree with you. I didn't mean to give the impression by "every
month or two" that we should actually have anything remotely resembling a
schedule driven by arbitrary dates. I meant here to suggest a very rough
idea of the sort of frequency that I think might actually work, and to bring
up the point that what we might consider minor features can be viewed by
users as major.
