I'm keen to see a new release, but I've been waiting to test whether the
commits I highlighted really do cause a problem or not. My trusty old test
suite that used to prove these kinds of things, depends on infrastructure
that no longer exists. I've started updating it, but it won't be finished
this week.

What about preemptively reverting those commits, making a release, then
immediately re-applying the commits to master. It's seems a shame to delay
other useful improvements.
