Well, hasn't it always been this way? A long lived branch lives until
the next long lived branch appears, there is usually a single short
lived one inbetween. Only legacy branches are really long lived (as in
having support for several years)

nvidia-settings is missing an unblock, and thereafter I'll do some
migrations in sid (first 415, then 418, as always the full stack of a
new upstream major goes to unstable even if only for a few days), then
unblock 418.

Also for stretch we had a few major version bumps in point releases
until we reached 390 legacy. Same will happen for buster, but I don't
epect a new legacy branch in the near future.
