Well, I doubt that the difference between minor versions would be
enough to motivate someone to do the work in most cases, but if there's
some catastrophically bad data corrupting bug found after 1.1 is
released, and someone wants to port it back and release 1.0.whatever
with it, I don't see why that's a bad thing.
