The freeze is on new functionality and infrastructure changes, to
allow us to fix up any of the packages which may have problems.  It
looks to me as if your proposed change would fit into the "we need
this in pkgsrc to make it a better place, since this would solve a
problem that people have seen", so I think you should go ahead and
commit it.

The freeze has, at most, another 9 days to run.
