I would personally prefer 3.3 and even 3.2 to have proper randomization
(either Paul's or Victor's or another proposal). Victor's proposal makes
fixing other hash functions very simple (there could even be helper
macros). The only serious concern IMO is startup time under Windows;
someone with Windows-fu should investigate that.

2.x maintainers might want to be more conservative, although disabling a
fix (the collision counter) by default doesn't sound very wise or
helpful to me.
(for completeness, the collision counter must also be added to sets,
btw)

It would be nice to hear from distro maintainers here.
