[wp-hackers] Any chance of the "Kubrick vs hReview" patch being accepted prior to WP 2.0 release?

Why not create a patch for the template file itself to use a different class
than "description" and submit it instead with an explanation of why the
patch is important?  It seems like a valid point, not so much for the core
of WP, but for a fairly mild accommodation of the microformat?  The only
real impact I would see is for users who have tweaked Kubrick with
additional CSS/markup and don't want to have that stylesheet overwritten
with a new style and template.  But they would run that risk anyway if they
don't change the theme name/folder as a new release would overwrite existing
