I don't see any advantage to this what so ever. The same amount of work and 
refactoring needs to be done, all you have done is made development more prone 
to human error, and fixes less likely to reach their intended target, and made 
getting point releases out on time harder as they need to go through more 
steps before they have all their patches in.
