I have no objection to the change, but it does seem to me that
*any* change to a "security" branch deserves to be mentioned
in UPDATING. I do not agree that we should ignore that policy
simply because this is a "5.x-release" branch.
[aside: actually, I think it would be more appropriate to call
these something like "safe" branches, but that's a bikeshed of
a different color...]
