Apologies, it's in the addition to cat.1 introduced in r83482, not in the
commit message itself.

I would argue that seeing as a major branch is about it be cut, now would be
the time to evaluate such a change, it would be quite some time before it made
it into a major release and would fish out some active participants who are
users of the feature.
