It's just that I have the feeling that sometimes releases get delayed
because people are busy doing other things, or don't really have
ZeroMQ releases on their mind. I worked on one project where there are
monthly patch-level releases, and I really like the predictability of
that (of course it depends on the overhead of releases).

Fair enough. I guess we should just write more automated tests.
