I won't be there, but I did talk to Chip personally about it, and made
the decision to do the rollback without an epoch.  Reasons:

1) it was only in rawhide for a short period of time (a few days, wasn't
in preview release)

2) emacs has a pretty big set of packages that have requires/provides
and what not and they can be rather fragile.  I wasn't keen on
introducing an epoch at this moment, especially because epochs tend to
be non-obvious.

3) We may shortly after F9 goes out see an updates-testing -> updates of
this version of emacs, after it gets some more fixes.

I told chip to do it without epoch and that I would stick up for it with
FESCo and the like.  It was my decision.
