What do you mean by "remains an option"? Lilypond has hardcoded code that will 
never print such brackets and also no tuplet numbers on single-note tuplets, 
unless tupletFullLength or tupletFullLengthNote is set to #t. The behaviour 
in these cases has not changed.

As an example, I tried the snippet from the regression tests and added some 
more tuplets. The third tuplet is with tupletFullLengthNote und 
tupletFullLength set to #f, so in 2.10 no tuplet number was printed. With the 
patch applied, the behavior for brackets is exactly the same: They are 
printed. The only difference is that the tuplet number is also printed when 
tupletFullLengthNote=#f and tupletFullLength=#f. Is this what you mean?

Test code (output from lilypond with the patch applied is attached):

\new RhythmicStaff {
  \set tupletFullLength = ##t
  \time 4/4
  \times 4/5 {
  \set tupletFullLengthNote = ##t
  \time 2/4
  \times 2/3 {
  \time 3/4
  \set tupletFullLengthNote = ##f
  \set tupletFullLength = ##f
  \times 2/3 {c'4.} \times 2/3 { c'4. c'4. }
