It absolutely should.  The only caveat I'd say, is that if it's a plugin
ONLY there is limited risk to the rest of the software.

VOTE started to extend, but we should be working with Mike either way
here.  If it's agreed on and merged into master before the cut, it's in
4.2.  If we do it a day after, then it's 4.3.  We are trying to be
time-based so that features can merge in (especially isolated ones)
anytime really (if quality is good and there's consensus on technical
approach).  It's just a question of what release branch it makes it
into.
