How would a new user know: 
(a) where to look for this patch
(c) to what extent it had been tried and tested
(c) whether such a patch had been accepted and integrated into Ruby
(d) whether there were patches that obsolete this patch?

Should we not have ruby-1.6.1.X so that people can know where they are
with patches?  Is this a lot more work?  Would there be an impact on
1.6.2 development, or even 1.7.x development?  Would such a scheme to
too inflexible for our needs?
