I am no committer, just a guy giving an opinion about this patch and I
have to admit that I have not enough studied the speculative insertion
code to have a clear technical point of view on the matter, but even
if the chances of destabilizing the code are slim, it does not seem a
wise idea to me to do that post-rc1 and before a GA as there are
people testing the code as it is now. Now per the two points listed in
the first sentence in this paragraph, perhaps this opinion is fine as
moot :) I didn't get much involved in the development of this code
after all.

Yeah, I got this one.
