I tend to have a very cautious (perhaps too much so?) attitude towards
branches.  Basically, I'm more comfortable with bugs we know than
risks we don't.  I've been trying to put only fixes for regressions
on the branch; we don't want the new compiler to seem worse than the
old one to our users.

If Jason thinks your change is important, and mine is not too risky,
then feel free to move it over.
