Hi again guys.

Although I agree that it is troublesome to break backwards compatibility

especially in a maintenance release, I do feel that this bug should get
fixed for real at some point (2.0?  Maybe at a release whose version means
that it isn't necessarily backwards-compatible.).

Regardless, I've modified my patch as you suggested.  It is attached
along with a patch to the documentation showing the new attribute.

Again, this is a bug fix and I'd like it to go into 1.4.1 if it's not
too late.
