I'm not sure if by "this" you mean the API change or regen of PPPort.

The code changes have already been pushed; net change over a couple of
commits (22ff313068, 73e4395489) is:

-Apdn   |UV     |grok_atou      |NN const char* pv|NULLOK const char** endptr
+EXpn   |bool   |grok_atoUV     |NN const char* pv|NN UV* valptr|NULLOK const char** endptr

.. since we also decided we didn't want to commit immediately to freezing
the new interface for the public API.

I certainly think we'd want to regen PPPort before 5.22 release.
