Personally I find adding libraries in a minor release to be confusing -
I expect a minor version essentially to be patching bugs, rather than
adding features.

I would be in favour of shorter release cycles though, as new libraries
come through the review queue. Regular releases like this would
probably keep the mainline more stable avoid some of the problems seen
trying to get the last 2 releases out the door.

[all credit to respective release managers for finally wrestling these
beasts into submission!]
