Indeed, externals are sadly limited right now.

However, time is now getting very short before 1.1.0-rc3.

Even if the patch didn't need further work (which it does), the 1.1.x branch
isn't really supposed to be receiving new features, especially at this late

The change is fairly localized, and the benefits quite significant, so
consensus *might* permit bending this rule - but it would require a
committer to take an interest and devote time to fixing up the patch, and
getting it into trunk ASAP.

Will that happen? Maybe...
