We have done them very occasionally, and I guess if there was a pressing
need to get msvc-2013 patches out then that would be a reason to do an early
patches-only release. I'm not sure how much that would speed things up
though, there's still a lot of figuring out to do before any release can be
produced. If anything the big reorganization for Git requires a slower than
usual release procedure.
