    Unfortunately this is completely impractical. 2.1.x is frequently not stable
    enough for some people to work on. Drivers are done 2.0.x first by most
    commercial oriented bodies and many users, all the network stack improvements
    for amateur radio where done 2.0.x first and ported into 2.1.x at the end
    of things after the updates had been available for 2.0.x for a year or so.

    I'm trying to keep 2.0.x change histories to avoid this kind of problem as well
    as the notes for each applied patch in .34/.35/.36. I've got 400 or so pieces
    of saved diffs and notes to hand from this
