None of these look like critical bugfixes. More generally, it looks like
we're switching towards a backport policy of "if it isn't too complex
and it might help", which is different from our earlier policy of "if
it's a really big deal and it looks like it won't break anything".

I think the stable users will be fine without most of these changes.
It's easy to fall into the trap of actively maintaining two versions at
once; but imo we don't have the developer-power to do that.
