Given that the 4.3.0 release is still somewhere between 6 and 12 months
away, and that lot's of people will be using 4.1.x and 4.2.x in the
meantime, I think that we should still backport bugfixes at least to
4.2.  To 4.1 I intend to backport fixes, at least those that seems
pretty safe and don't require lot's of work, until 4.2.0 is released.
