Am sorry, but that kind of changes cannot be considered as totally 
safe/straightforward, which is why they were put in 'to be considered' 
category instead of being backported right away. Devs had over a month 
to check on that public list and say which of their commits they wanted 
to be included.

Now that 2.79aRC has been published, we are much more strict about 
things we backport, only regressions fixes (in 2.79a compared to 2.79) 
and dead simple/obvious one liners are accepted… We can’t drag alone 
with this much longer, this has already taken a tremendous amount of 
time and energy. :/
