I don't think anyone should feel afraid to change things on trunk, but  
I think significant changes should be discussed here so everyone has a  
chance to chime in.  And API additions are not nearly as severe as  
having a method like seq() return a different value.  In fact, I  
personally don't have a problem with merging that to the 1.6 branch  
(others may disagree though).  I consider it a 'bug fix' in a loose way.
