This number may not be a lot, but for all these systems I suspect it
is greater than zero.

I think there is some consideration of the future here, and no matter
how small the userbase it is not crazy to consider releasing things
more often to make life easier for users. In fact many of the
developers are also users and even if we can easily build our own
Haiku from the latest code it would be nice to have a reasonably
stable version released fairly often.
