And if you're already getting the maintainer to take the time to review your
work and make sure it doesn't break anything they might as well be doing the
bump themselves.

That said, I think there's still a case for taking action yourself if you
can't get a response out of the maintainer within a reasonable time and the
bump is necessary (ie. fixes a real problem, not just because there's a newer
version out).
