And I'm absolutely certain that these same maintainers would *never*
upgrade openldap 2.0 to 2.1 or 2.2 in the same version of the distro.

Upgrading distro A to distro A+1 is one thing: many other packages
get upgraded too. But upgrading just one (important) component inside
distro A is different, as I'm sure everybody is well aware.
