Well, I'm hesitant to make exceptions (uh, you could argue it's the rule, not
an exception) - and from your requrest for feedback (Oct 3th) to this final
patch there were more than two month.  We're in the third month of stage3.
I'd rather honor people fixing bugs, not people inventing (or finishing) new
passes at this point ;)

But, if it doesn't touch generic code and isn't on by default I am not
100% against it.  But then I also do not see the need to push it to 4.3.
