Glad this is fixed upstream and in Gentoo! As far as slipping this
into older, stable packages without a revbump, I strongly urge against
this course of action. Worst case and since its perceived as a pain,
just don't bother with stabilizing the older versions until there is
another release, if ever.
If you have questions about policy, this seems to be QA related, so
ask one of the team.
