Hm. I must have mis-spoken. If you see a bugfix that should go on the branch
but hasn't, please feel completely free to do the backport. I have a mail
folder with -checkins messages that need to be checked for backportage, but
I only get to this periodically (and not at all in the last couple of weeks,
alas). I do plan to clear this out sometime this week...
