Sorry about that. I thought it was a small change safe enough to be
committed without asking to the list but apparently I was wrong. I'm
going to revert it right now on 5.3 and 5.4, but just for my personnel
knowledge, could you tell me what kind of problem this change can
introduce ?


"Stable" branches need to be kept stable, so only high priority issues
should be fixed.  The problem with any change is that modifying any
code can have unintended and unforeseeable consequences. More extreme
examples from other projects have involved white space differences
throwing off build tools; optimizer bugs/features changing expected
program behavior; the sudden exposure of latent memory issues due to
structure changes.
