Well, as things stand this series breaks meta-gplv2. This is currently

The question now is really whether we want to continue supporting meta-
gplv2 with master?
I don't like the layer, I think there are other approaches we're going
to need to take going forward and the project may need to send that
If someone steps up and fixes it, great, we can move forward and I'll
defer that discussion.
If nobody does, quickly, then I will need to start a discussion about
dropping it from the core YP testing. This patch is blocked until
something changes though :(
