Sounds like you're familiar with the problems, why don't you volunteer
to maintain the 5.2.x set of ports after a fork? Now both problems are
solved. :)

And yes, I'm serious, assuming that there will be updates in the 5.2.x
series that users will need. If not, simply not updating their
existing ports is a reasonable solution.
