Me thinks that for users, the only thing that counts is that a new release
is rock-solid (i.e. at least as good as the previous one). We see plenty of
people on the list that are still on, just for arguments' sake 1.47, there
must be a reason for that. They (must) feel un-comfortable with newer
releases and the older stuff (the releases that got delayed maybe?) just
works for them (the bit they are using in any case).
