Thanks for asking. Normally, I'd say absolutely not. We announced
we were starting this release a while back and said that there would
be only minimal changes required to fix bugs which could reasonably
be applied in a week. That week is long past.

However, since, like Boost.Python, Spirit doesn't appear in the
regression tests (we've got to fix that) and no libraries depend on it
(right?), you can't hurt the regression results by upgrading Spirit to
1.6.1. You may proceed if you can do it in an hour or less.
