Comment(by mwiebe):

 Yes, my memory failed me on this one. This was the particular case I had
 argued for:

 http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/numpy-discussion/2011-June/056605.html

 This is just a small step towards tighter rules that protect programmers
 from "silly" errors. I would still argue in favour of keeping the change
 in, and adding information about it to the release notes. Clearly this
 should have gone in the release notes, with a special remark to trigger
 discussion before the release, but I didn't think of it, and the code
 review didn't flag it as missing either. Probably "The Checklist
 Manifesto" applies to situations like these.

 With Travis now more actively involved, I'm certain he would like the
 opportunity to examine the changes and weigh in.
