Suitability of additional non-security fix for clamav?

I am in the process of preparing an update for clamav.

I am curious as to what others might think of including an additional
fix that is not technically security-related.  It fixes a rather serious
bug that causes clamd to crash if a bad virus definition file is
published.  The inclusion of the additional patch in the next wheezy
update was recommended by a clamav maintainer (Scott Kitterman).


Unless there are objections, I plan to include the patch as just a few
days ago there was a bad virus definition file published that caused
clamav crashes for many users.
