I wouldn't dream of backporting everything we've done since 1.30.0.
That would be pointless. There are just a few errors which prevent
major portions of 1.30.0 from compiling. I backported all the
important post-1.30.0 fixes immediately after hearing about them, but
I'm not sure everyone else did.

Note that 1.31.0 is going to be a code-breaking release for anyone
who uses iterator adaptors, so it might be important for them to get
a working 1.30.1.

But anyway, I don't care that much. A .1 release is more work, and
I'm all for avoiding work.
