We could have take the risk just after a release, so we had some months for
problems to emerge. Last minute merge of 118 revs that are not regularly tested
in trunk is a bit minor. Moreover fpmkunit is heavily used due to fpmake,
and merging is a pain, since support for newer targets that don't exist in
fixes might need manual adjusting.

So I would guess try to name hotfixes only.

That is a bit unfair, since I do merge fcl-passrc atm, but that package is
currently quite used heavily in trunk, and I kept up with merging every 2
months or so without reported problems.
