Sure, that's fine for now. Most of the commits are bug fixes after 8.2 
but we don't need to
worry about any of them now and I guess if we stick with this approach, 
and say there as
a CVE for vim that we wanted to fix, we'd just backport the single 
commit rather than
bump the version to 8.2.1248 or some such version.

Right. This will also give Oleg an excuse to try 'devtool upgrade' to 
compare manually upgrading. :)
