Correct - it's not on trunk, and noone's apparently found the time to
even run the reproduction test script.

Ah, I hadn't realized this project didn't do "bugs before features".
Also, I figured that if the branch date was moving because
merge-related tests were failing on trunk anyway, that whoever was
working on that would probably be looking at the relevant code anyway,
so it might be a good time to get it reviewed (or at least looked at
enough to make a ticket out of it, I haven't even seen that much

Thanks for the advice.
