In this case, I tend to agree.  I can be reckless at
times, but considering that 1.6.4 is already an
attempt to get the egg off our collective face from a
couple of (IMO) showstopping bugs in 1.6.3 perhaps we
should leave well enough alone.  I agree these changes
look innocuous but I worry about the timing.
