I strongly disagree with that idea, IMHO the version upgrades to released
versions are the main distinctive point of Fedora, many people (including
me) use Fedora for that very reason.

And the problem in this thread wasn't even such an update, it was a security
fix! Even if it had been backported to D-Bus 1.2.4 instead of an upgrade to
1.2.6, it would still have caused the same issue! So the problem we're
seeing has absolutely nothing to do with feature upgrades.
