After a brief talk on IRC.. How about if you..

1. Add a test to show the problem in trunk. Passing with the fix in it
of course.
2. Wait for the beta to get done.
3. Then you can ask again to make this change after the beta is out. And
we'll likely say yes.

And as always.. Please make such a request with pointers to diffs,
tests, trac tickets, etc. As it makes it faster to evaluate.
