Hi Lucas,

Could you please clear something up for me:

And then what?  In other words, should I implement the changes associated
with 4257 or not?  The text is in transport-33, yet the issue is still
open.  I take it to mean that this change is not as solid as it could be
and it may be rolled back (otherwise, why leave the bug open?).  In this
case, implementing this may end up to be a waste of time.
