According to our compatibility rules we cannot backport the change
as-is because it adds a new public function, and we don't do that in
patch releases.  I'd be willing to go along with backporting a version
of the patch that did not make the new function publicly available,
but adding a new API is inappropriate in a patch release because it
means people who write code to the  new release can't safely roll back
to the previous release due to the missing function.
