I'm inclined to say no, though it's not a hill I'd die on. (1) I want to
stand strong about platform standandards conformance lest we get nibbled
to death by ducks, and (2) given our adoption strategy I just don't think
worrying overmuch about the Mac makes a lot of sense.
Remember, without this patches we still have support for the *current* Mac
OS X, just not far back into older ones. I think that is a sufficient
gesture for our purposes.
The patches are in the merge request queue and can be read through the
Opinions of other solicited.
