Which pretty much sums up a dilemma in the development of FreeBSD, I think. Developers want users to try out their new shiny stuff, but users don't want to spend time upgrading.

I think one of many things that would be great to do is to improve the usability and coverage of the regression tests. This would take at least some of the burden off developers who want to MFC their work. We already have the tinderboxes, Coverity and Clang Static Analyzer, but apart from pho's stress tests we don't have any automated runtime testing (as far as I know).
