Given the first follow-up to #1036589, I'm even more convinced trying to
rush something for 12.0 would be a bad idea.

Having an extra component enabled and an extra package installed in some
environments doesn't really justify trying to get an immediate fix,
which could jeopardize all other installation scenarios.
