Understood, but I'm not sure why you feel the lack of a 1.6 release
would prevent a security release.
Surely we could just apply the fixes to the previously released code
and change to 1.6 at the same time?

Or would there need to be fixes to the code just to update to 1.6?
In which case releasing a 1.6 would ensure those were fixed at our
leisure instead of having to be fixed as part of a rush to release
security patch.
Is that what you mean?
