No, you have that backwards.  The burden of proof is on those who want
it to show that it's now safe.  The situation is not different than it
was before, except that we can now actually point to a specific bug that
did exist, whereas the original concern was just an unfocused one that
the code path hadn't been adequately exercised.  That concern is now
even more pressing than it was.
