No response?  None?

I mean, I'm not asking for much.  All I want is an explanation as to why
this _has_ to be in F12 and can't be rolled into F13 instead.  At first
glance, it would make more sense to let the feature get some testing in
GCC mainline before we just backport it to Fedora users, so putting it
in F13 seems better to me.
