That's ok, it's just a theoretical question.  The other question was
whether a 1.2.1 bugfix release would also go up, since 1.2 is not
linked from the front page now.  Versions from 1.5.2 to 2.2 are
currently linked from the front page.  Versions older than 1.5.2 are
not.  That reinforces the impression that 1.5.2 is still current
while versions like 1.2 are ancient history.
