Note that a stable bugfix-only branch doesn't have to be maintained by the 
same person who maintains the development branch, and often these _are_ 
different people.

The main limiting factor is a volunteer to do the work.  You can always do 
an "unofficial" bugfix-only release and get it blessed later.  (That's how 
the Windows and MacOS X binary releases seem to work.)
