I also agree.  It seems like overkill and increases the bug load
unless there are tools as suggested above.  Sometimes a bug is
reported in F-7 but fixed in F-8 and there is nobody who can
investigate whether the F-8 fix works in F-7.  Is it really necessary
to create a new bug just for that purpose?  It's seems better to move
the bug to F-8, and push a new update for both branches.  If it
doesn't fix things in the F-7 branch somebody will re-open the bug.
No big deal.
