Frankly, I am not overly interested in arguing what level of brokenness
is really "somebody else's problem"™.  Since you are the person who
currently appears to have the best overview, could you design a fix you
consider less broken?

I am currently trying to get the translation infrastructure moving over
to unstable so that translators can, at their choice, do some
after-the-fact polishing of 2.20.0 (then due to appear in 2.20.1 at some
point of time) or dive into 2.21.  The reason is that we want to get
2.21.0 out the door as fast as possible and return back to business.  Of
which there does not seem to be a dearth...
