Low risk, but not zero.  At the very least, since we've already
started a formal QA pass for 3.4, it would be great if any changes
made from now on mentioned what, if anything, should be retested.
This probably also means that changes should come with a BZ issue
where such information is recorded.

I'm open to arguments that we're not at that point in the 3.4 release
cycle yet.  But I think at some point we want to engage that level of
change discipline.
