Let me clarify part of what I wrote.  If we make this change in 2.7.16, then any code that uses the return value will not run on anything previous.  This may not matter for you, but would be bad for public code.  This cost is present in all bug fixes, but usually there is the benefit that existing code will run better without being changed, or that it becomes possible to get certain results that were not possible before.  This code does not have those benefits.
