Does this really make sense with a 6 month release cycle for the main 
releases?  Who are the customers who would be able to request a dot release?
Each additional bugfix release carries a significant cost.  Who is going 
to be investigating bugs in prior releases, especially if the problem 
can no longer be reproduced with the development branch?
