Right, but if you look at it you will find that many more fixes could 
have been applied had we had the manpower.

WRT the mysql 5 issue: I personally am not inclined to fix it in 4.6 or 
4.5, but I would fix it for the upcoming 4.7 branch if it existed today 
(since I've volunteered to be the maintainer). WRT features: We've neve 
made backports and I don't intend to change this.
