Bah. That's insanity. A bug fix is a bug fix. We never took votes for bug
fixes for 1.3, and I see no reason to start now.

Feature changes? Sure, we voted for those.

Seriously, people. If there is a bug, then it should be fixed no matter
where it lies. Sure, there can be some waffling based on *how* a bug is
fixed, and hopefully people will know when to ask.

What's the problem with fixing a bug. Really?

And remember: this *is* source control. If somebody commits a bug fix and
people want to shoot it down, then we can revert it. But assuming
correctness and committing the fix is hella better than gating every single
little change.
