I'm not in the position to judge, unfortunately. If there are no known 
regressions that this branch introducses, we should probably merge it ASAP as 
it fixes regressions in our core components. Or course we never know, but I 
don't know how intrusive this code is anyway. Thiagos judgement is probably 
very valuable here. Some testing beforehand would obviously be needed though.

The later we merge it (if we decide to do so), the less time we have to fix 
possible problems.

That'd be awesome. I take it that there are no other showstoppers in PIM then?
