It depends on where we build 3rd party binaries. If we build on
the earliest branch there is no problem. But if we build in the
latest one there is. We should write the rules down, so that we
don't repeat the same problem on each release. Perhaps the best
solution is to add the missing function on all branches, but that
does not help those who did not upgrade.

That can always cause issues.
