HV> you asked about a minor release upgrade that does not introduce any 
incompatibility issue; that is the way I've been doing since Plone 4.0 
with almost no problems at all.

the only issue I found was precisely on Plone 4.1.2 and Dexterity 1.0.3 
because the KGS was incomplete; I told that to Eric Steele and the 
problem was solved quickly.

lines in my buildout; version pinning in Plone 4.x works like a charm 
but, obviously, you must test the upgrade first in an staging 
installation, not your production site.
