Answering to myself who has been in tying-loose-ends mode.
My answers to these questions are both yes, and I have a neatly
lined up series that begins with a small bugfix and then
enhancement, but I do not think these do not deserve to in the
upcoming release. The topic came too late, and even the fix is
for a bug that has been with us for a long time.
