It has not changed.  As I stated in the trail of comments in the bug
report, things that break backwards compatibility like this will not be
accepted.  The only reason the bug report is still open is as a reminder
that we need a unit test to mimic code that depends on the current
behavior (similar to the config file parsing code in Tomcat and Struts)
that would break if a change like this were to be made.
