If you're happy to live with unsecure software, certainly =)

you can try and cherry-pick security updates, but then you get the
problem where initial release has Foobar 1.0, then Foobar 3.5 gets
shipped in updates, then a security problem emerges and Foobar 3.5-2
with the security fix gets shipped in updates. You now have a choice of
unsecure Foobar 1.0, or completely new version Foobar 3.6.
