FYI: stable point releases are made every 2 months.  This will
continue as long as I can afford it and the ftpmaster required is
around (which is not the case currently, though).

I'm already testing postfix and lists software on a different server.
It's not that easy to switch because postfix works different.  Due
to this a switch would cause extra load on listmasters/their infrastructure.
So, mainly, this depends on me implementing it safely.  I doubt any
DPL can force it faster.
