Well, we don't change released versions retroactively.

R 3.2.0 is R 3.2.0. If there's a bug in 3.2.0, there's a bug in 3.2.0 and there will continue to be a bug in 3.2.0. If we fix it, the fixed version will be something other than 3.2.0.

(Actually, we could conceiveably distribute and modify R.app and other shell applications out of sync with R itself, but that is not what we do.)
