It might be worth backpatching the patch (ie, the
ifndef addition) to the 8.2 branch, which would allow us to say "8.2.5
or later" instead of "8.3 or later", and would bring correspondingly
nearer the time when people can actually use the feature without
thinking much.  Comments?

My 2 euro cents (about $0.027) conservative comments on the subject:

 - It is more work for a minor issue. I would just update the doc for
   previous releases.
 - New features belong to new releases, on principles. It is not really a
   bug which would require an update of previous releases, and changing the
   PATH is a valid workaround anyway.
 - Do it your way:-)
