The minute the first patch appeared, I said it was too late and would be
in 7.3.  and put it in the queue:

Igor didn't like that so I gave ideas to see if it could be trimmed down
and slipped in.  I thought trimmed-down version might make it, but even
then, the odds were against it.  I said I would pitch it to the group as
best I could.

At a certain point, even the work of verifying a patch is 100% safe is
too much work, and we are better off moving on.

Igor, it is not a personal thing about you or the patch.  It is just the
mechanics of getting a release out.  We can't make everyone happy, and
you are seeing that now.
