If you think that RCness (or desire to fix in stable) is relevant,
surely the question is whether _you_ think this bug is severe enough
to be RC ?

Personally I think the bug ought to be fixed in stable, as I've said.

Would you vote in favour of a resolution which insisted on pushing the
change to stable, would you vote in favour ?  I think not.  So it's a
red herring.

I think that it will be easier to convince people to push it into
stable after we've demonstrated that it works well in testing.

If you think it's a release-critical bug and that it ought to be
changed in stable, surely you should vote in favour of my resolution
as a step towards that goal ?
