My impression: there's a reasonable amount of agreement on what has to be
done, but no one has stepped up to do the work. It doesn't look like
something that should block a release, because there's not a huge amount of
interest and the API is already labeled 'experimental'. So I don't really
see an issue in releasing 1.8 with the same behavior as 1.7.

Cheers,
Ralf
