The 1.11.1 release would be binary-compatible with 1.11, but it would contain a few changes (like the version stuff mentioned above) that wouldn't normally go in a release branch.  What do you think?

If that’s your goal (and it’s a good goal) there is an easier way to achieve it: simply tag the old releases.

I don’t think it’s wise to expend scarce resources to generate a release simply for the sake of generating a release.
