Normally I would agree with you.  But like all good rules, it's best 
honoured in the breach!  I think with the current reorganization we just 
have to accept that some things will be seriously broken for a longer 
period than we would normally like.  Further, I don't think this is 
something that can easily be done on a branch either, so we will just have 
to put up with the pain on the trunk for a while.

Having said that, I do think we need to be working actively on the issue 
now that it has been brought to light.
