Security updates and bug fixes are intermingled without being able to distinguish one from the other outside of the RPM history.

those pesky .0 blues as you call them were clearly there - see other
threads about video issues, etc.

I guess the point I was trying to make without being excessively blunt
is that the track record of timely releases for CentOS 6.x (any release)
and the track record of timely security updates (none) should really
cause any one to pause before installing any version of CentOS 6 - even
if 6.1 and all of the current security updates were released tomorrow.
