I've just heard about another issue which probably will
require an rc5. Whether that means it makes sense to add
this fix too I don't know.

Not a technical reason, but we're a bit short on time to do an
rc5 today, and I'm away on holiday until Tuesday after that

My current plan is that we'll roll rc5 on Tuesday with
either just the fix for that other issue or that plus this
one, and then tag final release Thursday.

What you lot as the block maintainers should decide is
whether this is a release-critical bug that justifies sticking
a fix in at the last minute, and if so make sure you have
a patch on the list which fixes it and has been reviewed
and flag it up to me so I can apply it on Tuesday.
