That was once.  And then there was a time where it was "21.4 will
likely be another bug fix release".

There was once talk to have another RC_1 branch release, before we
decided to bite the bullet and go directly for a trunk release next.

The problem is that I saw quite a few announcements of the "will be
fixed/available in 21.4 or 21.5" by now.  Since talk was made about
another RC_1 release, people have amended the lines that once talked
about the feature being in 21.2, 21.3 and 21.4 in succession.

And if indeed people expect 21.4 to be the next great thing,
releasing as 21.5 will do no harm.
