On the other hand, (I'm not sure if such a system might already be
in place...) it might be reasonable to say that a given module might
want to rally an extra bugfix release on the said current release -
if for example an important bugfix was made in the platform after
the 2.18.1 release - does that library maintainer have the right
to ask for a 2.18.2 to be released to address this ? (and then 
I suppose the idea would be accepted/rejected by the release

Or is that all just moot since vendors will go pick up the bugfix
regardless of an "official gnome release" ?
