Ryan's patch changes the API, so it would have to go in before beta.

My (theoretical) patch to switch OLD_WRITE from an internal buffer to use
the new brigade buffering has no impact on the API at all. It can happen
before or after beta.

Unrelated: I believe we can change APIs after the beta if we want. We're
trying to build a great product; if an API change is needed to do that, then
we should. We certainly don't want to change broad architecture -- that
would definitely screw third-party module developers, but API changes are
