I am planning to offer a single file patch for 2.3 and 2.4. As far as
one more 2.5 release, I don't think there's going to be many changes
to the 2.5 branch between now and 2.6/3.0 final - although if there
is, we'll obviously have to do another release.
I wouldn't be horribly surprised if more nasty lurking bugs remain in
the C code. The google security review found a bunch, apple found
some, but there's really quite a lot of code there...
