Since he didn't add a new parsetree node type, there wouldn't be any
database compatibility issue AFAIK.  I'm pretty certain that keyword
token values never get into stored rules.

However, there is our self-imposed "no new features during beta" rule.
This looks like a relatively harmless patch, but do we want to break
that rule for something that people are not beating down our doors for?

I'd vote for holding it for 7.2, I think.
