Another way to look at it:
Lets take some very modest figures of 3000 miles between oil
changes.... average speed overal, say 40mph, and average running rpm
of 3000. Now those figures I guess could well be a lot higher for some
on the list (drive it like you stole it???)

3000 miles at 40 mph takes 75 hours = 4500 minutes.
4500 minutes at 3000rpm = 13 1/2 million crank revolutions!
Sounds like quite a lot for the oil to cope with between oil changes.
