Well, I don't see a reason not to apply it if it works... but I think my
pedantic nature and current lack of SVN development experience make me a
good volunteer to implement the saner fix. (I want to see the bug
completely fixed, and since it's a harmless bug I probably won't break
anything in trying.) I'll see what I can do.
