    Lots of people do. I get all my wireless, my isdn, my usb
    patches all nicely prepacked and merged for example.

    The primary limit on the rate of change is the rate at which Linus merges
    stuff, nothing else.

    For the ppc folks I guess because they are keeping a parallel tree. Thats a
    totally different animal because you collide continually with things you've
    submitted and changes in the core tree.
