"in current speed of development mozilla will have to double the time between releases... :("

And you're getting this information from where? We fixed nearly 3000 bugs during the 1.2 development cycles. There were about 4000 bugs fixed in the 1.1 development cycles which was about 30% longer than the 1.2 cycles. By my rough queries and math I'd say that works out to about the same. So why, then, do we have to double the time between releases? And even if development slows some, why do we have to add the same ammount of features and code in every future release as we have in every past release?
