Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that I was shrugging off the issue.

One thing that might help would be for us to stop insisting that every
minor release number must mean at least one major new feature.
Instead, it could just be that we feel the code has progressed far
enough, and enough bugs have been fixed (but not backported), that
it's time for something bigger than a patch release.

I think this would cut down on a lot of frustration, because people
who have made improvements (including minor new features that wouldn't
by themselves justify a release under the current system) would see
them get out the door sooner. At the same time, if a major feature is
close to being done, we can try to coordinate it with the release --
no need to be dogmatic either way about it.

Thoughts?
