It always depends, doesn't it? We are backporting *security* fixes
to packages, but we take care not to introduce new features. I don't
oppose some small modifications to the kernel, fixes and security
backports, but including a 2.5 IPsec stack in 2.4.21 is kinda not in
accordance with that policy, now is it?
