ABAP programs version management



Is it possible to setup abap programs version management in a way all temporal program versions created during transport request is open remains in version database after request has been released?

Currently we have situation when temporal versions exist in database only during modification phase and disappear once transport request is released.

Reason - during long time modification of productive program there are situations when it is necessary to do some small and critical modifications for support purposes. Then currently program version is rollbacked to productive state and all long time modifications are lost (sure we can save versions locally but this is quite uncomfortable, unsafe and so on). Another way - release request with uncompleted modification, retrieve last stable, do critical modification, transport both, retrieve uncompleted one and continue with long time modification. But in this case we have productive version that is potentially harmful.
