Was that sarcasm?

I asked the question, simply and only because I am still using 3.8 and 
have never even looked at 3.9 to know what is or isn't in there.

Other people have looked at it since, just not in that particular report.
The whole point of using testing in the first place is to reduce the 
'cost' of releasing, to release frequently and often etc. If the test 
suite is comprehensive enough to cover the bases, and the test suite 
passes, then including it is a 'no brainer'. I don't think it matters 
what release, or when. In this case where you are fortunate enough to 
have a test suite, then why not go for it.

So, although I hadn't suggested putting this in RC2, and I don't think 
that my fixes/ideas will have been sufficiently tested for a couple of 
days, now you come to mention it, I think that that it would be a great 
idea to include it once the testing has been done.
