Remember, long tail has a cost as well, in terms of time to educate, to review, the hit to quality (which LO continues to suffer from), etc.
Put it this way: who creates the better product, 1 person with 15 years experience with the code base working 40 hours a week? Or 50 inexperienced people working 1 hour a week? It is a rhetorical question and the answer is obvious. Of course, we all hope that some in the long tail progress, gain experience and spend more time hacking. It sometimes happens also. But not as often as it does in open source fairy tales.
