As one of the people that gave you a hard time, I will say much thanks!

A question though... given that minimyth2 is a FE only distribution,
what will it's commitment to tracking -fixes and/or compatibility with
the BE be?  Clearly if there is no database API differences in an entire
-fixes release stream, it's pretty easy to stay compatible but at that
point in -fixes where a change is made that requires a synchronization
of FE and BE what will your policy be?

Perhaps one way to handle this is to keep a history of releases
available so that people can match their BE release.  If you rebuild a
MM2 on every commit to -fixes and continue to keep the past builds
people can choose whichever one they want.
