This is a case where the change can't possibly make anything work
in itself, it can only break things and help with debugging. If
people are sitting on stable hopefully they're not still
debugging their systems. I don't understand why you are pushing
so hard for this, there is very little upside on stable.

Backporting this won't help achieve that aim.
