Gentoo case: Assuming nothing else is broken, the workload for the packagers 
of bumping every package from 4.9.1 to 4.9.2 is near zero. (Running a script 
over a git tree.) The main disadvantage is that all users will have to re-
download all sources. 

But then, we're as a source based distro maybe a special case.
