Sorry if I offended anyone.  Sometimes being blunt stirs up better 
discussion and I was trying to be blunt, not offensive.  I was also 
responding to the overly broad application of infrequent, massive 
upgrades.  But of course my wording made it look like I was criticizing 
good reasons.  All work and no play makes Jack a (mentally) dull boy. 
My apologies.

Otherwise, Matthew wrote a nice reply that captures what I was getting 
at pretty well.  Ever work for the government, Matthew?

Bear, I'd be happy to hear what your system lifecycle looks like, 
assuming you're a sysadmin.  If you come down DTC way I'll buy you lunch 
and tell you stories about low quality software.  And you can tell me 
how to find a job at sysadmin Nirvana where I don't need my 'tude. ;-)
