Are you counting other than Apache releases?  (I see only 4 here, two
of which probably should be removed:

I'd like that but my sense is the general populace of hadoopers would
think the append/sync suite of patches destabilizing -- append/sync
has a long 'history' in hadoop -- and a violation of the general
principal that bug fixes only are added on a branch.

Sure.  The notion has been broached before up on these lists -- e.g.
there was talk of a 0.20 Apache release that had security in it -- and
at the time folks seemed amenable.

Thanks for getting the discussion off the ground,
