I'm a bit reluctant to start touching the requirements lists for
feature work. We do have some bug fixes in the pipeline that will
require library releases, but those are for bugs not new features.
We also have one or two libs where feature work needed to be extended,
but none of those have dependencies outside of the project producing

The main reason to require a client release is for some *other* project
to take advantage of the new feature work. Is that planned?
