I'm not thinking of anything in particular, big or small. I just quite
liked the general principle that 22.2 could never (in theory) be any
worse than 22.1. If one allows for non-bugfix, non-self-contained new
features in 23.2, then this guarantee goes away. Or, if one doesn't
allow for such changes, then developing on a 23.x trunk means delaying
such changes till after the 23.x series.

Perhaps this is just being overly cautious though.
