Hi Mark,

I'm sorry for not dropping this to begin with: I saw your nack and the
patch ended up still being released because of my fuck up rather than
me purposefuly ignoring your ack, sorry.

However, I'd like to say that I don't agree with it. I understand your
reasoning about keeping the stable trees conservative, but I feel that
going to the extreme with it will just encourage folks to not upgrade
between major versions.

I'd like to think that upgrading major versions should be the same as
upgrading minor ones (because numbers don't matter here). If that's not
the case, let's fix it!
