I'm not entirely sure about this patch.  Rarely should a patch ever be
applied directly to maint without hitting blead first.  I can only
think of one case where I had a patch applied to maint only and that
was due to API differences between blead and maint.  I'd rather that
patches be pointed at blead than at maint without being directed by
the appropriate pumpking.
