Uh, no, the suggestion is to do *nothing* in the back branches.  Yes
they're buggy, but without any field complaints, it's hard to argue that
anyone much cares.  And I agree with Greg Smith that for anyone who does
care, a behavioral change in a minor release is much harder to deal with
than a change at a major release.
