Yeah, that kind of maddening inconsistency is the sort of thing we
usually try to avoid.  It looks like the choices are:

(1) Don't do anything on rhel6-branch and live with the consequences for
the next 500 years.

(2) Make the change on rhel6-branch and break some people's
expectations.  It only hits on ppc, so the damage is at least a little
contained.  Perhaps we can make the change and let everyone know why
we're doing it well ahead of time so no one's surprised?
