We have too few critical regressions.

I mean, we have too few categories for regressions.  I can see the

a) Precludes work (patchy/staging catches most of those)
b) Precludes releases
c) Precludes a stable release
d) An eventual fix should be backported to last stable

My personal opinion is that we overuse category c) because we don't want
to think about d).  It's nice aiming for a stable release that will
never need a single backport or regression fix in its life time.

But that nicety pales against the garishness of not giving the users
anything ever.

So what does it take to make option d) workable?  For this kind of
thing, it seems much more suitable than c).  After all, the regression
is in a somewhat outlandish area that few users actually are interested
