It would be neat to be able to take the fixes in 4.1 until 4.2 comes out, and (assuming you haven't touched system classes) point your updates at 4.2 upon release without too much trouble.

It's our current stable release (btw, someone should update Wikipedia) so if packages are posted to the 4.1 repository, they would not simply be taken from trunk. They would be carefully selected, high-impact fixes only.
