I'm actually looking forward to 12->13->...->15...I'm running bpl12
(technically) atm, and have been meaning to upgrade for a while.

By going through each and every patch file, it eliminates a lot of the
"newbie" type questions that may be sent.  Also, I guess it allows you to
actually *understand* what's being changed bwn patchlevels (as well as
reading ChangeLogs) and indeed, may alert you to a bug that noone yet has

Besides, since when was a ~600kb patch file a bad thing. :)
