I'm less concerned with the fact that a release might (will) have bugs
than the fact that it takes so long to get from the initial branching
to release - an every-two-years release cycle is very embarrassing,
especially when you try to introduce someone to NetBSD and the latest
release (1.6.2 in this case) doesn't know what to do with half of
their modern hardware.
