I don't think that personal attacks like this are warranted. Tom points
out that this is a relatively big code change by an "outsider" during beta
which would also require users to re-initdb their database. It's an
unfortunate situation but if a plurality of core developers says that this
would be too much potential burden during beta you have to accept it. You
are free to publish your patch via other mechanisms if you like, or
contribute it to 7.1.

And patches based on older versions can't be used in general.

Agreed.
