Yeah I agree.  The change is pretty safe and am willing to give you a
sign-off for the -3-4 inclusion.  But can you confirm that you are
submitting your patch under LGPLv3+/MPL 1.1 ?  Then I can push this to
the -3-4 branch.

If two others agree to give her sign-off's, I have no problem including
this in the -3-4-0 branch.
