That's not really feasible, it would be a lot more work to maintain and
require a lot more bandwidth and disk space for mirrors. And it wouldn't
bring any benefits over the current system.

As for a rolling release model, that may be more feasible, but again what
are the benefits over the current model? And it'd have the major drawback
that users could no longer decide on their own when to upgrade e.g. to KDE
4 (for which right now they have a window of ~7 months).
