It's simple.  The people who use the x.x releases are those that
either 1) need the added functionality or 2) haven't read the HACKERS
mailing list :).

Personally the new non-locking VACUUM is enough of a win for me that I
will be giving 7.2 a whirl sooner rather than later.  In fact, I have
a planned downtime over the Christmas holiday, and I have been toying
with the idea of rolling out whatever is available (even if it isn't
the official release).  In fact, if there was a Debian package of
7.2b4 I would probably be running it right now (hint hint).
