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.  

Of course, it was pretty much shut down before:

I’m in favor of releasing more often as well.
