The history of irregular verbs in Spanish....

Okay, so this might be a question with an obvious answer, but remember that I tend to be thick-headed, so bear with me. I'm thinking that Perikles might be someone who is well poised to give me a wonderful answer.

I was reading an article about Spanish verbs recently (I need to get a life) and the author made a statement that went something like this: "Verbs that are the most often used happen to have the most significant irregularities...." Blah, blah, blah....

So why is it that the more commonly used verbs have the more significant irregularities? Do you know the history of any of these irregular verbs?

Thanks!! (Perikles...)
