Updates != upgrades.

I think frequent updates to given package set to fix bugs is great.
Frequent upgrades to a package set for new upstream features, behavior,
bugs, incompatibilities is not so great.

With the 6 month cycle of Fedora, and our willingness to break things
like crazy in the rawhide world, we're still a very very fast distro and
unique in the distro space for early adoption of software.  This all
comes /without/ even considering what we do for updates to our releases.
Even if our releases only got bugfixes, we're still uniquely agile to
new software and technologies and very fast to new releases using those
things.
