No. A bug is a deviation from documented behaviour.

We haven't documented the kind of query performance you can expect, so
a performance improvement clearly isn't a bug fix.

You're right, but it's still a non-trivial code change that might well
introduce unknown regressions. It is good practice to avoid
introducing unnecessary changes in maintenance branches.

The change belongs in the 1.5 release, but there's no stopping us from
releasing Jackrabbit 1.5 already next week if we so decide. Personally
I don't think JCR-1365 is by itself important enough to justify a new
release and people who want or need it immediately can just as well
build the current trunk for themselves, but if there are enough people
who'd like to see 1.5 released soon then I don't see any reason why we
couldn't do that.
