i agree with you here, but with kdenlive after the numerous crashes, corrupted 
project files, etc... there's just too much that can go wrong with even bugfixes 
imho, let alone new features.

if my wife wasn't using kdenlive i would've said, that it was a maintainers 
nightmare to get all these separately fixed with bugfixes and testing, and to go 
ahead (and i believe i said so in the past), but now that the project is 
almost ready and we've had our share of bugs/issues, i'm sorry, i don't want 
to have ANY risk whatsoever to this project file and i don't think it'll load 
correctly, or even have the same rendered result... so, no, sorry, i know it's 
buggy and crashy and stuff, but if you do update to this, i'll not update this. 
it's just too risky.
