One minor point of clarification: while the MAC was backported to 1.4.4+ it
was not made a part of the public API in those releases.

I have been presuming this was an intentional compromise position. I like
the current situation and would prefer we have major additions like the MAC
released for a version before adding them to the public api (even though
this specific case was a retrofit). Still, if our intention is for MAC in
1.4 to be a part of the support api, I'll need to file a ticket and fix it.
