Sure: it was unproven that that fixed anything at all, much less that it
was bug-free enough to be safe to backpatch. Neither of those things
has changed since May. If you want you can try making up a 9.1 with
those changes and giving it to this customer to see if it fixes their
problems --- but without some field testing of the sort, I'm pretty
hesitant to put it into back branches.
