There shouldn't be a huge difference. If your release happened in-between Qt 
patch releases -- which are coming about one or two months apart -- did you 
really get that much done?

Of course, you may want to completely decouple your release schedule from the 
rest of Qt's to the point where you merge in new features while the rest is 
working on maintenance only.

The numbering scheme that André and Kai proposed preclude that.
