Ok, last cycle we rejected this as it was presented so late in the cycle.
That was based on the sheer size and scale of the machines potentially
affected, around 150 if memory serves. That said, it seems worth the
risk at this point in the cycle so I have pulled this in and it should
be in the first upload after Alpha-1.
We will need to ensure we get good testing on this, perhaps a call for
testing is in order. I am assuming you will be keeping an eye out for
bugs triggered by this change.
