I looked at r18215, and I didn't find it was immediately obvious how
to merge it to the 1.3.x branch. For this reason, I'd like to see a
merge branch before I can approve the change.

In general, I'd say it's best to use merge branches for all
conflicting backports, because it's the safest thing to do. I don't
want to approve a change and then later find out that the change was
merged incorrectly.

Thanks,

David
