It would be nice.  I didn't know there are releases of those
planned as well.

Now looking into it, 7.3 and 7.2 branch are missing the
OpenSSL EVP cipher functions removal patch - which is even more
nasty as it does not crash but silently corrupts data.
'make installcheck' detects it, but if somebody forgets
to run it...  (Thankfully encrypt()/decrypt() are not used
much.)

Would you apply this one aswell?  I see that the original
patch (openssl.c r1.11) applies to both branches without problems.
It is a bit larger than this one tho'.
