...well, with my limited armchair-anthropologist credentials I will say that I do think forcing weaning has been one of humanity's most sad mistakes; when I think about the rise in agriculture it seems to be more like a knee-jerk reaction to scarcity (starvation during ice ages would lead new generations to try and find a more static food source, one could guess...) Of course, as I said, that's just speculation. But it makes more sense in my head than any other theories I've read.
