pkgsrc quarterly update on the way

I'm getting it together for building the 2007Q4 pkgsrc release on pkgbox,
so that we have a new set of binaries for the next release.

Are there folks who want each quarterly release to last half a year, or
should I stick to only the most recent release?  I'm leaning towards not
doing this, as the previous quarter's release is not updated, and anyone
trying to stick with it will not be updating frequently anyway.

If the answer to that is yes, I was thinking I'd take the existing 2007Q3
binaries and put them in
/packages/previous_pkgsrc_release/DragonFly-1.10.1/i386/.  This does eat
up more disk space and bandwidth for the mirrors.

Also: are there any ABI changes that will mess up 1.10 binaries on a 2.0
