No point, they aren't compatible. Since modules aren't compatible, we 
don't upgrade until the next major release when we'll use whatever is 
current at the time for the next major series. (e.g. if we had a 
hypothetical 8.x series and 8.0 had 2.2, the rest of them would have 2.2 
as well). It's not a bug, it has just evolved a bit.
