The convenience of you being able to commit these things to trunk has to be
balanced with the fact that every bugfix commit from now on would have to be
applied to 3 branches (4.1, 4.2, trunk) unless we drop 4.1.4 (which I wouldn't mind,
but I think it's a bit late to decide that -- it makes a lot of past backporting useless
and a lot of translation work in 4.1 branch useless too).

If you really want to merge things into one more branch, I suggest a work branch,
but I see no reason to impose that additional work onto everyone else.
