Oops: I should qualify my "I'm with you" a bit.

I do not mean that all of the subsequent integration work that was
done on the presumption that 1.2.2 was done should now be pulled into
the 1.2.2 line --- that would be disasterous.

I do mean that I think, given that we don't have (and probably don't
want, yet) to develop formal release goals for every release, there
*is* room for collective judgement about what can and should be "snuck
in" when the clock gets reset this way to fix a bug.   

In other words: I don't personally have an opinion at the moment about
whether the "'changes' input validation speedup" should go in or not.
I do have a meta-opinion that it might very well be reasonable to
include that --- we don't have to go into a strict "bug-fix-only" mode
when the clock is reset.
