Yes, and we're sorry it took so long to be included.

We might be similarly persuaded that global sieve rules are worth doing, though
there are issues of making sure they interact well with everything else and
that they're correct and well implemented.  The mere existence of a patch doesn't
mean it's ready for use everywhere.

       that patch - nothing stopping you )
