We have better chances for bugfixes, don't think the snapshots which
we used till now ( nearly one year old and also only based on
the development release) will get some love anymore.

For security issues, there were none that i'm aware of except for imlib2.

But if you argument this way, we should stay with the packages we have
until E17 is fully stable and release, but i don't see how this would be better.
