Aren't all the -pre's pre-finals? And what if there is a big bug found in
the -final, it will obviously be followed up with a -final-final?

I like the ISC's release methods. The do -rc's (-pre's would be fine for
the kernel as it is already established), each -rc fixes problems found
with the previous. When an -rc has been out long enough with no more bug
reports they release that code, WITHOUT changes.
