I meant, the messages from other developers who raised that change broke certain test cases.

Ned, but I got little concerned, if we planned to revert the change.

I agree with completely. I will include an additional blurb for this change for security fix versions.

Exactly my feeling too.

I hadn't considered that. But it wont save much will be my opinion. The users will have to upgrade to supported versions anyway and it will break then. The problem is only pushed a little. 

So, keeping it consistent seems alright to me. It is a little additional for everyone, but we seem to be doing it.
