While I think this is a Good Idea, to my knowledge there isn't any
particular driver for a speedy release.  I also haven't heard that many
of the bugs considered important/critical for 2.3.1 have been fixed;
generally speaking, a patch release tends to be a collection of
available fixes rather than driving the bugfix process.

This is Python.  We don't care much about theory, except where it intersects 
with useful practice.  --Aahz
