Huh? What STATUS file are you looking at? I see this:

  * Issue #1733, attachment 305
    Backport r8551 to 1.0.X to cause blame to bail on binary files.
    Justification: Nicer behavior to the end user.
      +1: sussman, cmpilato

I don't see your -1...?

And we *have* done a backport that is slightly different from r8551,
specifically a backport which doesn't create a new error code. We're
nominating the patch, not r8551 itself. Look at issue #1733. We've
already been down this road. :-)
