Backport or not ?

I have just pushed a fix for bug 67132 [1] where not all parameters of 
recurrences were saved to sql.

This fix would probably be very easy to backport to 2.4.x.

However, the patch involves updating the table definition for the 
recurrence table (a column is added for the parameter that wasn't 
saved). The table format as it is in 2.4.10 is incomplete so it causes 
data loss. Fixing it in 2.4.11 would mean that once a datafile is opened 
with 2.4.11, it can't be opened with 2.4.10 anymore (due to the 
increment in recurrence table version).

Yet the bug was reported against 2.4.10.

So I'm not sure about the proper decision here: backport or not ?
