what would you want to accomplish with your idea?

To make kernel releases more stable/tested via "testX" series, as recently discussed by David Miller's "Slow DOWN, please!!!" thread. These "testX" releases will give more opportunity and time to test more these new releases. Also, with the aim of the "testX" series, the new kernel release schedules/merge windows will be not slow down. Even, Linus can releases new kernels more quickly. Because, testing purpose should be handled by someone else like Chris did for 2.6.x.y.
