Not every feature that someone dreams up and creates a PR for should
mean we have to hold 3.0 beta 1 until it goes in. There are features
that are required, and features that are nice-to-have. If nice-to-have
features don't reach approval in time, then they should be dropped from
3.0, and wait for 3.1 instead.
