Well, obviously the 8.4 release cycle did little to help them.
As has already been observed, there is a crying need to say "no" at
some point to get a release out.
It might actually help to do that on big patches if we don't let too
many tiny ones accumulate. I seem to remember the argument being tossed
about that "we might as well keep working on this one because there's
all these others to wrap up."
