No, John, it's not better, it's worse, at least within the scope of patch
releases within a single major.minor version number.

What you're forgetting is that while that ensures nobody can build a version
with any CURRENTLY known bugs, we'll be locking them in to building code that
has ALL of the currently UNKNOWN bugs. The next patch release of Neon is FAR
more likely to fix some (of the currently unknown) bugs than to introduce new ones.

Makes sense?
