I hope not. Many applications have a numbering scheme that follow the KDE SC 
version numbers in some way. So they would have to bump their version numbers. 
Which means we either need to create a new branch for them if they already 
have post 4.9.1-changes in their KDE/4.9 branch or include their new changes. 
Which would mean we should add another stabilization phase or something.

So, my vote is clearly release a 4.9.1a of exactly that one tarball.
