Well it's what we do for released branches, and I think it works
really well. It's up to us engineers to have the discipline to make

look a heavyweight process it ends up being more lightweight than
having to issue bugfix releases later :-).

As metze has voluenteered I'm happy to be reviewer for these
bugs also.
