If you think they're worth it.

I'm dealing with catching up on project work, which is too bad because
the main feature I have is still off to the side (new serialization
and typmod).

We haven't had to deal with this stuff during a release cycle, but my
preference would be to adopt the PgSQL standard and say "no new
feature commits during release, as it's distracting from where you
should be putting your effort (bugs and stability)".

Summerish... ?
