We are on track to merging the solution in !615, if you have objections 
please state them *soon*, together with a patch that fixes the problem. 
We are rapidly approaching the planned mid-January 1.1 date.

To snip one large set of objections in the bud: Yes, this solution is 
/hideous/. Unfortunately the nature of the bug means that we get to pick 
two of {correct install path | can import without shenanigans in the 
user's environment | pretty}. This particular node in tradeoff space 
also means that the ugliness is directly in our code where it can be 
paired with a big fat explanation comment.
