Thanks.  Yes, this is OK for 4.3, and for mainline should Mark decide to
reopen it for general bug fixes.  Alas, I've not been following the recent
release discusssions, but I agree that a temporary return to stage2
would be preferable to diluting efforts with a 4.3 basic improvements
branch, but even that shouldn't be necessary if the regression counts
keep dropping.

Of course, my preference is for contributors, including you and I, to
voluntarily hold-off on posting patches that are only suitable for 4.3
until after we branch.  Better still to post regression fixes.  But
perhaps the burden should be on reviewers not to comment on 4.3 patches?

My apologies if this has all been discussed in a thread that I haven't
caught up with yet, which would explain why your approval request has
the form it does.
