One the one hand I want to just say, "sorry, that sucks, but you guys 
should be better about watching your release deadlines" but that only 
hurts users. I have started going through these backports and I 
definitely think some of them we can ignore.

I really hope asking the stable team to go through and fix this up for 
people post-freeze doesn't set a precedent.
