The binary package changes. 1.12.6 doesn't have the fix, 1.12.6nb1 has
it; this way we can ask testers which version they tested.

Every binary package change usually should incur such a bump.

You don't have to rebuild everything, nothing forces you to. I didn't
bump the ABI nor ABI depends line in cairo/

If you just want to test if this version fixes a problem you're
seeing, you can build a binary package for it and replace the
installed version with that one.
