If you believe John Walker, you might think it was on purpose. Then again, 
someone a few years back (Zubrin maybe?) made the statement that NASA's 
problem was ACHIEVING its goals. Once they successfully completed a program 
their funding is inevitably cut. So it is in their own best interest to 
stretch things out...

Down the rushy glen,
We daren't go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
