Just a little nitpick: with this scheme you will accumulate longterm kernels. If
I understand it right, one longterm kernel is added every year.

but with one new kernel being added each year, and then being dropped two years later, there are only 2 long term kernels at any one time (that Greg will be maintaining at least, nothing stops other people from maintaining other long term kernels in addition)
