I don't see how.

His patch:
   machine = get_machine_uuid ();
+  if (machine == NULL)

Current tools/dbus-launch-x11.c, 1.4, as tagged for 1.0.0:
  machine = get_machine_uuid ();
  if (machine == NULL)
    return FALSE;

I'd say we make a 1.0 branch off the 1.0.0 release and tag it every time 
we release.

We can also decide to branch off HEAD before the .0 release for further 
releases (i.e., start the freeze).
