But I think it's more "security through obscurity" than actual "security bugs being accidentally fixed" that may help you there. Running obscure or frequently changing versions of things could give you an amount of invulnerability to opportunistic attackers toolkits of pre-built, version (and often build)-sensitive exploits.
But I think the argument for such a thing is relatively thin, as it will give you little protection against an "advanced persistent threat".
