Postponing a patch often leads to the author losing interest, and to
the patch never being applied.  I don't know if we can afford that.
I'd be quite happy to see this going into 0.7 rc2 and trying it out
for beta 1 (or whatever the naming scheme is), especially if we can
fine-tune the tests a bit.

Cheers
