<20110501133957.GA13682@rivendell.home.ouaza.com> sounds to me like we
will loose quite some man-power for making stable releases. This could
equally well mean we can't do some.
If it is guranteed that stable release don't become harder / uglier, I
don't think anybody has any reservations to adding new suites.
However, as long as the general impression is "making stable releases
will get way harder", that's different.
