Great discussion on this thread.  I've summarized the votes and the
comments below:

+1: 7 votes
Chiradeep, Ahmad, David, Marcus, Sebastien, Chip, Mathias

+0: 0 votes

-0: 1 vote

-1: 3 votes
John, Francois, Outback

Given the discussion that ensued and the results of the voting, I 
will *no longer block the release for this issue*.  I understand 
that this is not the favorite resolution for everyone, but do
understand that we are resolving this problem officially for our 4.2.0
release.  Using the experimental system VM images will be an option for
users that want the S3 functionality within 4.1.
