Yes please. It was my first comment, we don't understand the exact issue
you are fixing.
And I have a bad feeling it could break something else (really just a feeling).
It is not the kind of patch we can apply the last day of a release.
That's why I think it should wait 17.02.

Of course you can try to convince me and others to apply it as a last minute
patch. But why are you sending a patch on the generic API in the last days?

Last argument: it is not fixing a regression of 16.11, so it is not so urgent.
