 Thanks for the explanation, but that was for somebody who asked with their 
developer's hat on. I asked with my packager's hat on and that means only 
what's above is an incomplete answer to my questions and the rest is 

 For example, openSUSE 11.3 is now entering RC phase and that means that only 
fixes can enter it, not features or newer non-patchlevel releases. Since the 
fix is in 1.4.0 and openSUSE is at 1.2.8 IIRC, 1.4.0 cannot enter openSUSE 
11.3, neither now nor later. Now I know what the fix is and I need to know 
what the actual problems are to evaluate and possibly justify a request for 
exception to the rules. With the information given so far the fix appears to 
be rather risky and not even remotely worth a problem that has existed for 
quite a while and is "theoretical".
