The fix is an obvious one, and one we've made before to other parts
of WordPress, so I'm not worried that it'll be bypassed (past similar
fixes would have been bypassed by now). It does call attention to
it, but any PHP script kiddie worth his salt would have been able to
pick the change out of a big changeset anyway.

Yep... normal WP users aren't on the wp-testers list, so it could
give troublemakers a head start against them.
