I've only seen one commit to master since the merge, so we'd only have that
one to re-apply.    ajax?  anholt?  keithp?   Any of you want to fix this?
(Or have any of you looked at the changes to see if we need to fix this or
  should just let the changes in, if we also pull in aaronp's wfb build fix?)
