Probably RAM/flash constraints, as usual with Cisco gear. From
operational point of view, I have seen and heard of only good
things about 12.3 mainline (not the early ones, but let's say
starting with around 12.3(5) or so).

Hm, about what? About Ciscos policy of not providing "just ENOUGH"
RAM and flash with the gear to avoid customers being forced into
forklift upgrades? ;)

See also Gert's comments on 12.2(25)S memory usage...

Sorry for sarcasm, but this is really Cisco Blues (one of the verses).
