The problem is that there _aren't_ bug fixes for these old

comes out, upstream pretty much drops development on 4.x-1 except for security
issues which are backported from 4.x.
If upstream really issues security fixes for 4.x-1, then this is pretty
much perfect. We get 4 or 5 bug fix releases, and after that only
security fixes. One would imagine that with 4 or 5 bug fix releases that
branch has become stable enough to not need massive patch backporting.
