Well, we had at least a week when the only release-critical bug
was the po-replace translation thing.  It's a bit silly that we
couldn't have a release due to a 5-line texinfo documentation
thing, and in retrospect I should have done a "hostile revert"
(especially since the commit in question didn't go through any
review or countdown).  But since the developer survey was coming
up, I didn't want to open any new wounds.  Also, I was more sick
of arguments than normal, so again I didn't want to start a new

In hindsight I should have reverted it.  And if there's no clear
offer to fix it before tomorrow, I'll revert it anyway.
