Hmm. Third party development doesn't only occur after a release. I find
these bumps in addition to their compat function also very good as a
documenting tool (so we should at least add a short description about the
bucket thing to the last bump).

w.r.t. changes in CVS - we're in a stable branch. Nothing should be removed
here after added (except Bugs ;-). If we start to work that way you
described outside the development branch, then there's something
really wrong.

IMHO, of course...
