Well, at least amoung the folks I've talked to new features seem to be 
the primary motivator for upgrades, even over security fixes. I'm not 
saying that's right, but just reality. At least one "hook" is needed, a 
release should appeal to people's emotional side as well.

Given the feature vs bugfix ratio in 2.2, I think we're safely over that 
bump. :)
