1.4.4 and 1.4.9 are ABI compatible? At least that's the reason I
believed it wasnt risky. I can send them to the mailing list especially
with such a core package (GNU Guix dependency). But often it stays
there and no one is looking so. E.g. the unzip vulnerability patches,
nobody looked until I actually pushed them out of waiting for reviews,
I tried to hint multiple people on IRC during several days, no answer
still, so I ended up pushing it, turns out I had several mistakes in it
and because it was pushed well some people looked at it and helped
fixing which was welcome.
