But your suggestion assumes users actually file the bugs they're seeing, which 
unfortunately we cannot guarantee either.

Also, new versions often come with nice new features. For example, XChat 2.8.4 
can now save the scrollback buffer for the session and display it as context 
the next time you open that chan or dialog window. The KDE 3.5.x updates also 
came with small feature additions like that.
