For how long you plan to maintain 2.6.x.y -stable series for each
2.6.x release? The thing is that tehere will probably be NO
.123 "revision" (with maybe the exception of 2.6.16, thanks to
Adrian again). The end result is that there will be just no stable
kernels *at all*. because when the next 2.6.x will start looking
more or less useful due to 2.6.x.y series, there will be new 2.6.x+1,
and work with 2.6.x stops...

It's not the case currently, but this way ("let's fix the bugs
in 2.6.x.y -stable series, don't bother releasing 2.6.x in a good
shape"), we can finally come to the above situation...
