And Canonical will support a live upgarde directly from Essex to
Icehouse and Icehouse to Mitaka?

I'd love to see Shuttleworth do that that as a live keynote, but only
on a system with at least hundres on nodes and many VMs...

That's where LTS falls down conceptually we're struggling to make
single release upgrades work at this point.

I do agree LTS for release would be great but honestly OpenStack isn't
Mature enough for that yet.
