If 1.19.3 is just the security fix + translations, I'd be willing to
allow the translations as well.  If there is more changes beyond that
then "it depends" (defaulting to "no").
  Can you provide us with a filtered debfiff of the 1.19.3?  Just
remember to let us know what filtering you used (e.g. filterdiff -x
'*/messages/Messages*.php' ).
