I recall the discussion to defer blocking to 1.6, which I don't support, but
these two issues are the largest ones for the community in my mind. I still
suggest getting these into 1.5.

Nice, but not as important as the above two, but then I don't do tons of
renaming and refactoring in my work.

While I understand we all want to get 1.5 out, it's going to be a long time (9+
months???) before 1.6 is close, unless we want to have a short 1.6 follow up, so
I'd rather see the most common needs handled in 1.5. The short release cycle I
recall, has met resistance due to the pain to our users and downstream packagers.
