What are you not convinced about: that the fix is correct, or that it
has not been put in the branch?

If it's the latter, I don't have strong opinions either way.  Stefan's
fix makes an incompatible change to the behavior of modification
hooks, albeit one that makes it behave more cleanly.  It seems
unlikely that there is existing code that assumes the old behavior,
but I don't know for sure.  One way to find out is to let it sit in
the trunk for a while to see if bugs crop up, but if you think the
risk is low, sure, let's add it to the branch now.
