lets see the diff, but it looks like a good proposal to me.

You mean cherry-picking 28d8e6a8711ba78f1684a205e11b0dbd4ff2b2f3 ? It's really
PITA without this as one needs to make server side compatible with those
broken clients, so I would be in favor to fixing this. I've just checked the
API/ABI compatibility and it should be fine, that flag adds 2 new symbols so
this shouldn't cause any harm (tm).
