Do you remember how long it took to get a distro to ship 2.2?  And did
any of them ship 2.2.0 or even 2.2.1?

Now we finally get a much larger testing base to help find all of the
lovely corner cases.

Of course there is still a bunch of _known_ problems in 2.4.0, but we
will not talk about them, or whose code they might have showed up in :)
