Ur. Sigh. I'd like to see 1.4.0 too, but why pile on Max like this?

Even late in a release cycle, there's still a big difference between a
bikesheddy bugfix question, and a bikesheddy option name question.
The former is not an interface for which we will have to maintain
compatibility, the latter is.

If you want to complain about something, complain about the fact that
there's no good way to resolve the issue. But please don't complain
about Max's timing; this was Max's last chance to head off what he saw
as a poor choice of option name. I don't blame him for asking the
question, impending release or no.
