As everyone knows, I'm a proponent of rolling things out more
frequently, but that change looks huge.  I think we should have a bias
against rolling out large changes because they're much harder and
disruptive to roll in and out than small changes.  (Of course, we
should also have a bias against accepting large patches, but sometimes
they're necessary, as I assume Oliver's change was.)
