I was thinking about it last night, and I think it is ok to go in.

I think the changes outside of Python are pretty easily verified as
being safe.

As for the Python changes, if something is wrong in the implementation
of the new code -- well, it is a new feature, I think it won't break
anything existing.

So, I think it is ok for 7.4.
