Unfortunately, as can be seen in Bugzilla [1]-[7] to list a few of them,
plenty of people do know about them. Unfortunately most of the attempts
to fix these issues have usually introduced another one. The current
problem is [8].

The change is likely to be on the larger side of what we are normally
comfortable with in 6.0.x but lets wait and see exactly how big the
change is and what benefits we get (in terms of less fragility, code
with test cases for regression testing etc) before deciding how good or
bad an idea this porting this will be. At the moment the discussion is
rather academic as we don't have a concrete backport to discuss.
