My concern is that the lack of proper C-g handling for such a long
term may imply a problem in the fundamental design of the port.  Of
course, no one can be sure unless someone refutes it by actually
implementing it.  I think maintainers should set some time limit to
wait such an implementation, and IMO the beginning of the pretest is
the most appropriate timing.  Even if "nontrivial changes" is not
necessary as Adrian says, there should be enough time to test the new
code before the release.
