The bugfix does not change any public interface.  And the documented
behavior is expected to remain the same.

It clearly corrects existing behavior and adds a bunch of new test
cases.  From that point of view, it shoud go to emacs-25.

I see your point - thanks for clarifying this.  But as stated above, I
don't think it falls into this category of changes.

Thanks!
