Think of it from the standpoint of you wanting to create
a distribution. If every week a new kernel comes out that has to
fix something like a forgotten comma, then you would probably
be in trouble, right? I mean, bugs are "natural", you can't write
code this big without them, that's why it would be nice to
test it a little more before putting it in the stable-kernel-directory.
Afterall, every bug-fix is very likely to introduce a new bug =)
