It looks fine to me.  This list (the ZODB list) is probably not an ideal
location for the patch, which would be:

 http://www.zope.org/Collectors/Zope/

as that will perpetuate the motivation and give us something to point at
in the changelog.

BTW, some might call your change a "feature":  I would back
characterizing it as a bugfix (and describing the defect).  As such, we
can then deploy it into release line code, rather than only on the trunk.
