I know that I am probably being semantic here but I in know way want to 
be more aggressive with back patching. My
thoughts for 98% of things in on bugfixes within the existing tree only. 
Although I am sure for some things we can
use (at least as a guide) code being written in 7.4.  My whole purpose 
in bringing the idea up is to increase the adoption rate.

My thought isn't to be more agressive per say, but more responsible in 
our releases. Like I said, I may be, being semantic.
