one can always say that, but there is a balance to be struck, and it is 
*very* obvious that 6.1 will be what and when 6.0 should have been.  
whether BC is broken doesn't even matter at that point, because no-one 
sane who depends on binary compat will touch 6.0 with a ten-foot pole 
now. also, i've been watching qtcore dev closely, and _no-one_ behaved 
as if a release was imminent, for good reason - it simply wasn't ready 
yet, everything still being in flux.
