People who want point releases aren't just asking for what we _think_
will be "no interface-breaking changes," because the best we can do is
guess. Who knows what the effects will actually be on their platform in
their environment? They're asking for the release, exactly as it was,
plus bugfixes. That's it. No new features, no new libraries, period.
