OK, I just wanted to double check as in the case of macros+friends it makes sense to
backport them when possible (no breakage expected) so we can get simpler guidelines
For simple macros and other things that cannot possibly break anything,
yes, it makes sense to backport them. But XMvn is too essential to
Fedora Java stack. This combined with poor test coverage makes it too
risky to backport any major version.
