Yingqi,

a patch of this scale is generally added to the branch early, once
three committers have had a chance to review it.  By living on the 2.4
branch for some time (long before 2.4.13 is considered for release)
we have the best chance of catching a problem between now and the
release of 2.4.13.  

It would be just as unlikely to be added just before 2.4.13 is tagged
because that doesn't give enough of the community time to review it.

Yours,

Bill
