Alternately, this is delayed because:
1. We have one tested patch to fix the issue.
2. However, people are convinced that there's a better patch possible.
3. But nobody is working on this better patch except "in their spare time".
Given this, I once again vote for releasing based on Tom's lengths-only
patch, which is done, tested, and ready to go.
