As a maintainer I get the patches as well, as well as an early access to
the tarballs. But with such border cases when new release comes with new
features and security fixes all together it's nice to have ability to
provide both versions - old one with just sec fixes and new one with
new features. As we don't have ports versioning yet, employing -devil
suffix could be reasonable solution to provide both versions.

With best regards,
Timur Bakeyev.
