Given that the risk of regression is far from zero (hence the tag "medium"), I'd rather avoid for a while and observe instead. Very few users will notice an improvement, maybe only two, but every Lua user would have to accept the risk of a possible regression, so care is mandatory. We'd do it to 2.1 first, and after a few releases possibly to 2.0 if there is compelling demand for this. By then 1.9 will likely be dead anyway. If you're facing a high enough Lua-based connection rate that would make this a nice improvement to the point where you'd be taking the risk to use the backport, I think everyone would very much appreciate that you run with this patch for a while to help confirm it doesn't break anything. Thanks, Willy
