The point is that there's a nontrivial chance of a hasty fix introducing
worse problems than we fix.

Given the lack of consensus about exactly how to fix this, I'm feeling
like it's a good idea if whatever we come up with gets some time to age
awhile in git before we ship it.

Obviously, 2ndQ or EDB or any other distributor can choose to ship a patch
in their own builds if they're sufficiently comfortable with the particular
patch.  That doesn't translate to there having to be a fix in the
community's wraps this week.
