Note that there's also the time it takes to make a release (usually 
involving at least one beta release), plus the possibility of introducing 
bugs while adding new features or even while fixing agreed bugs. All of 
this takes time in addition to the time people might want to invest in 
'real' development on the 2.x trunk.
