I agree -- while it would be nice, a big pile of header changes has a
disproportionately high risk of causing build regressions, which would
kinda defeat the whole purpose of doing another release right away.

I'll merge them after the release so we can go ahead and start getting
widespread testing for them early in the next release cycle.
