[wp-hackers] fixes for old versions

A client is worried about the time needed to fully test their site
every time there's an upgrade. It is quite a complex system, a custom
theme interacting with a bunch of plugins, but it's constructed pretty
solidly. Obviously I'll upgrade on a staging server first, but I think
only basic tests would be necessary, certainly for point releases.

I can't find any information on this, but out of curiosity, is it
possible to get *just* security fixes for old WP version? So, say when
3.0 comes out and it jumps up from 2.9.4, would there be a "2.9.5" for
the security fixes? My guess is no, but I thought I'd check.
