Overall I agree (is this a+0.7 ?) but people need to be given time to
upgrade between versions. Some projects and commercial vendors provide
support for a 6 month rolling window to enable this. From a sysadmin
point of view this would be preferable.

Now 1.0.2 is out and 1.1.0 isn't just yet (I hope soon though) so we effectively broke the
rule. I'll look into backporting the required patches to 0.11.x so people can at least do
manual fixes.

Yup - solves the issue above neatly.
