Don't want to interfere with the release team work - but, if 4.11 is going to 
be a long term maintained version (and it is) doesn't it make sense to let 
this go in during say 4.11.3 or so (it would've gotten some more testing by 
then)? Otherwise, this won't reach users for a long time - and that's neither 
very motivating nor benefiting anybody.
