I didn't propose to do that, because, although the new connector appears
robust and stable, there's the risk that it would have new bugs, or, even
worse, (re)introduce some security problems. I took great care of adding all
the URL normalization code from the old connector, so that it shouldn't
happen, but I'd say it would still be a significant risk to make it the
default without some extensive beta period. Since there will be such a beta
period for 4.1, I think it is a lot safer to postpone making it the default
for now.
