Actually, I mean it a bit stronger.  For a stable release's code
freeze, no new issues from our bug database should be handled,
regardless of whether they are bugs in behaviour, or in typesetting,
or documentation, or whatever.  Fatal crashes must be fixed, of
course, and advertised behaviour must be fixed, too, in case it
doesn't work properly.  But even new regressions found after the code
freeze shouldn't be handled but delayed to the first bugfix release of
the stable version.
