I don't object to these changes. I'd be stupid if I did.
However, still there's no perspective *when* the next stable update
may happen, and ftpmasters able to implmeent have still not answered.
I also don't remember any ftp master saying that this change is a
pre-dependency (I don't remember aj wrote that, but I'd have to
check to be sure).
Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessarily a good idea.
