It looks small and harmless.  I think we should add it before v2.4.0.
Have you signed copyright papers with FSF?  My account
doesn't seem to work so I can't check it...  A copyright transfer is
required to use your work.  If not I can send you the forms offline.  If
you agree to sign them, I don't think we need to hold up the release
before the FSF has received your papers.
