But we are not talking about a security fix.

Obviously a security fix would take priority, and I would hope that
both it and bug fixes could be done without breaking peoples systems.

But the discussed release of X.Org 7.1 is a feature enhancement, and
one being considered by the maintainer with the deliberate goal of
breaking existing systems running F5.  That is not fair to the people
running F5.
