I suggest we stop seeing Dmitry's branch as "master" for RMI4 development.
Instead work on the v4.3-rc6-based branch you have at, and then (after the merge window)
rebase it to v4.4-rc1 and ask Dmitry to *drop* this old branch and pull in
your stuff instead, and then look at the end result of that.

Who knows, maybe he thinks it's clean enough to go into v4.5.
Or for parts of it to go into v4.5.

In any case, surely he's more helped by an up-to-date rebased branch
than having to rebase it himself too.

Another reason for us to reboot development based on *your*

I'll go over and review the patches though!
