Thanks Shai, I think you said it best. This is the problem I have with
policies, rules, or whatever for back-compat or stable-porting.

People should be able to contribute what they are able to.

And another problem I have with 'stable' being trunk, in the past trunk has
become 'frozen' for releases and such (I think pretty much real all
development stopped around the 3.0 timeframe for a really long time).

I think this is extremely unhealthy and we should never do this again.
