That's a fair question. My gut feeling is that if and when a security
fix comes along, and is applicable to 1.1.x, and vendor-supported
versions of major distros still rely on the 1.1.x line, we should try to
provide a patch.

On the other hand, said major distros have more paid resources on hand
than this project does, so it would be nice if they'd give a hand when
the time comes to produce and test such a patch...
