Apologies for the quoting - I'm replying from my phone. I think in terms of code quality it'd be fine for stable but since it introduces an incompatible API change it's really a no go for the default stable release - any out of tree users would be broken by it which would be bad. It might be worth suggesting somewhere to publish them - if I get a chance I'll probably post something to my blog which should get good Google juice.
