A complete description of the change is:

Users who depend on the current behavior in regards to having cgis modifying
their content will not be effected by the patch. Things will still function as
expected. No change.

Users who don't want their content writable by cgis can adjust directory and
file ownerships to prevent this from happening. This is what the patch offers
and is was not possible before.
