As the author of that patch for 2.0 ... I have to suggest no.  Many other
interrelated changes have gone into 2.0's negotiation and other entangled
modules.  Changing that back in 1.3 is not trivial.  I have no time to invest,
and any effort would require the vetting that many invested in reviewing and
chasing out bugs in my code.

We are treating 1.3.25 as a VERY stable code point.  Destabilizing features
will almost certainly be vetoed by the developer community.  The cost to
the development of the Apache 2.0 code base every time we have to untangle
changes and bugs in the 1.3 tree is not appealing to the project contributors.

Sorry, but glad you enjoy the feature, and hope to see you adopt Apache 2.0
if that (and many of the other new features) are valuable to you.
