I don't have an opinion on whether it's appropriate to back-patch this, but I do have an opinion that Monday morning is the worst possible schedule for committing such a thing. We are already past the point where we can expect to get reports from the slowest buildfarm critters (e.g. Valgrind builds) before Monday's back-branch wraps. Anything that is even slightly inessential should be postponed until after those releases are tagged. If it's HEAD-only, of course, it's business as usual. regards, tom lane
