Maybe it could work like this: version 21.4 is released.  A bug
regarding mumblefoo is found.  Somebody takes 21.4 and fixes the bug
and releases a mumblefoo patch against 21.4.  A bug regarding
frobnicating is found.  Somebody else takes 21.4 and fixes the bug
and releases a frobnicating patch against 21.4.

Each such patch is also applied to the head.
