As long as the build of DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2 works, yes.
I want to support incremental upgrades, but not skipping releases,
simply because our codebase is moving fast and that would mean a lot
of nasty things to keep around. For example, we can assume that the system
has getopt_long by now, because the release branch has it.

I also consider fixing bootstrap upgrade problems a regression for the
release branch, though we have to be extremely careful there.
