I think the question is more about how to handle bugzilla with respect
to 4.1. If the conclusion is that we want to get rid of the 4.1 regression
markers and thus close remaining 4.1 only bugs as WONTFIX then
we should officially close the branch. If people still want to publically
maintain it by for example backporting patches then they could do
so on a branch on top of the last rev of the 4.1 branch.
