If you don't trust your judgement on significant vs. insignificant
changes, you can just have the user review them:
- Significantly altered versions may be provided only if the user
explicitly requests for those modifications to be applied, and
is prominently notified that the software is no longer considered
the standard version, and is not supported by the copyright holder.
The version string displayed by the program must describe these
modifications and the "support void" status.
This specifically allows shit like the Xft patch that I will have nothing
to do with (not until enabling clear crisp unblurred fonts is no more
effort than 'echo crisp = yes > ~/.fonts.conf'), provided that users get
an unmodified version unless they known what they're doing.
