since we want to support backports, i see this as the only way to have
support for backports, either you have all backports, or you don't.

the QA resources required to make cherry-picking be supported is
uncountably high. and exponentially so.

this can never be tested in all combinations.

besides, we're talking about people who don't have your skills, they
either have it enabled or not.
