I second that sentiment. But it strikes me that we're doing this
because our release frequency is completely inadapted. If we had
feature releases, say, every 6 or 9 months, the problem wouldn't really
exist in the first place. Exceptions granted by the RM only tackle a
very small portion of the problem, because the long delay before an
accepted patch being in an official release *still* frustrates everyone,
and the unpredictability of exceptions only makes things *more*
frustrating for most players.
