My opinion is that something that is not required for 3.0 to ship
should continue to be developed in HEAD.  Once it is finished,
then we will discuss whether or not it is suitable to be merged 
into 3.0[.x]  If the risk assessment comes out OK, then we can look at 
merging it for a 3.0.x release.  Not that code that changes the
semantics seen by an admin or user will take a lot of convincing 
for me.  Internal changes for correctness are much easier to swallow.
