Except in exceptional circumstances, code only ends up in the 1.0.2
branch after having first gotten into the master branch and then the
1.1.0 branch.  The current release policy only allows bug fixes to be
backported to the stable branches, not new features. To me, this code
seems more like a new feature than a bugfix, though I do not claim to
speak authoritatively on the matter.

The preferred mechanism for submitting patches is as github pull
requests (against the master branch, with a note in the pull request
message if the backport is desired).
