At the risk of putting words into Kevin's mouth, I think that you just 
made his point. I'd be very surprised if Kevin couldn't get x number of 
people to say yes to a fix that he considered urgent. This might confirm 
that the fix had its expected consequence, but I think that he already 
knew that or he wouldn't be trying to push it to stable. It wouldn't say 
much for stability or edge cases, only a good regression suite would 
give confidence on that score.
