In theory we have binary compat, but that is theory.  During 7 we didn't
(for a pretty good reason, but still) and releng got much more hard core
for 8.  That said, if 9.2 is good enough, it avoids the risk from 9.2 to
9.4, having taken the 9.0 to 9.2 anwyay.

Yes, but that's basically always an issue.
