Well, speaking as a portmaster, the labour involved in doing more
testing and approaching a continuous release cycle *is* an important
factor, which does bear on your main point.
I don't kick snapshots out the door till I've installed the snapshot,
run it a few days myself, and rebuilt the snapshot from scratch with a
make -j3 or something.
