That whole discussion is actually only relevant for Windows, as I 
perceive it. If you're using whatever repository with GNU/Linux or the 
likes, packagers will bump package release numbers on packaging issues 
(and other issues) and you'd get an updated package without doing a lot. 
As Jürgen said, there is no point in having a new _QGIS release_ because 
of packaging issues.
