Beating a dead horse, 1.8.5 should be compatible with 1.8.3, via
whatever mechanism. (The actual problem in this case was elsewhere.)

I am skeptical of pushing significant changes into stable branches. I
really don't want to be in the situation in which 1.8.4 works for
someone, but 1.8.7 does not. You might be right, Neil, about that path,
but it does not give me warm fuzzy feelings.
