What is the plan for landing the other patches? In general: I think we 
should be careful to only land things in non master versions that are in 
master already. Of course this is more work but will pay back later.

Btw, are the 0.88 patches not landed in the upstream branch yet [1]?

Maybe you should ask if others are interested in the 0.88 branch. I do 
know of dextrose so far. Of course we have the regular Fedora users and 
Ubuntu ones?
