I would guess that most people would view the ability to read archives
created with 1.32 as more or less vital, just my 2c worth...

I don't really see fixing this as an addition, more like fixing a
regression, as long is doesn't hold up the release of course! If the latter
is likely, then delay until after the release, and then release a patch
against 1.33: maybe put a note in the 1.33 docs that a patch is imminent,
but didn't make the deadline etc.
