Huge amounts of time, effort and users. How much arch team time was
spent fixing genkernel? How much time was spent fixing the OS X mess?
How many users did we lose as a result of all the QA screwups?

an awful lot of people in that thread were suggesting that more time be
spent on QA and fixing existing bugs and much less on fancy new
