Indeed, and mostly we do not merge enhancements that are non-trivial to
stable branches. Each change that we backport introduces the chance on
regressions for users with their unknown (and possibly awkward)

The patch itself looks ok, but it is difficult to predict how the change
affects current deployments. I prefer to be conservative and not have
this merged in 3.8, at least for now. Are there any statistics in how
performance is affected with this change? Having features like this only
in newer versions might also convince users to upgrade sooner, 3.8 will
only be supported until 3.12 (or 4.0) gets released, which is approx. 3
months from now according to our schedule.
