You didn't list the platforms that you have tested this on.

We have a norm (stronger the last few branches) of not having changes
just pre-branch that risk widespread breakage, for some corresponding
values of risk and widespread.  Basically I think people should not be
expected to encounter untested (on any particular platform)
infrastructure code in the few days before and during the freeze.  I
don't mean to say that I think there's anything wrong with what you've
done; I'm suspicious of all changes, and this one is not limited to a
few packages.

I am curious what others think about this.
