i agree for after 4.1, but for 4.1 the following should be considered:

- Qt 4.4 is out *very* soon now and it would be good to take advantage quickly 
of some of those things (like aliens and WOC)

- future 9 month cycles would then align with Qt releases (they are on a 9 
month cycle too)

- we have quite a few things that are 90% done that would be good to get out 
sooner rather than later

- this would give us a great way to show momentum (essentially because we have 
all those 90% done features just waiting in the wings)

after 4.1 i agree with you completely though =)

i honestly don't think we'll need to =)
