I think maybe he was referring specifically to
https://launchpad.net/bugs/1867119 (which really should have been
marked as a duplicate of
https://launchpad.net/bugs/1793029 and the older one reopened
instead). In short, it describes an intended/expected behavior, and
any potential changes to make it less of a potential foot-cannon
were deemed in 1793029 to constitute an API break, so would not have
been safe to backport to stable branches. Instead the behavior was
highlighted with a warning here:


Probably if 1867119 had been redirected to 1793029 as a duplicate
and the discussion continued there, attempts to backport the "fix"
for it would have gotten shut down quickly, but that's all hindsight
now I suppose.
