Yes, but I would wait a bit to avoid the same issues as we had when
`diff-add-log-use-relative-names' was set.  Anyone who had pulled the
new commits with the change but hadn't rebuilt Emacs to know that these
are safe values was prompted the "are you sure these variables are safe"
queries.  If we wait for a week or two then I would guess that most
people following development will have pulled and rebuilt at least once
by then.
