I also prefer that one.

Yes of course. That is your decision.

Yes certainly. I've attached chronology that shows that feature freeze
period has not been ignored. Everything pushed after Aug-16 have been
fixes for stuff already in master repo.

Patch requested today should show that there's little left. But
functionality this patch would provide already existed in first
patches provided Jul-29 and Aug-02 by Steve.

It is not my decision weather this should go in before next release.
It is yours.

What I'm asking here is you postpone this decision until Steve
provides requested patch and we can see if it needs further polishing
and better evaluate risks associated with pushing it in feature freeze

Steve, please, I'll test your patches locally here. Don't let the ball
drop now ;-)
