According to what statistics? Also keep in mind that distributions will 
download Qt once and redistribute it to thousands of users. And also that 
there are 2 classes of Qt users: application developers and end users.

Such a bold claim really ought to be more substantiated than that.

I would on the contrary expect users to want new features sooner rather than 
later, also considering that Qt is almost 100% backwards compatible from one 
release to the next anyway, but that is just a feeling with no statistics at
