Sorry to hear it; we feel your pain. Unfortunately, I don't know
anyone who can (or is willing) to commit to a schedule for fixing
issue #898 right now. That doesn't mean it won't happen; it might
even happen soon, possibly for 1.4 (we don't know 1.4 timeframe yet,
but it should be less time than elapsed between 1.2 and 1.3).
However, you shouldn't make business decisions based on it.

(I'm not sure exactly what the "won't know about it" scenario you're
describing is; maybe you could show an example?)
