Four implementations exist now:
* for master: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/5713 (merged)
* for 0.10.0: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/5714 (merged,
and included in 0.10.0rc4)
* for 0.9.4: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/5762
* for 0.8.6: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/5765

The 0.8 and 0.9 version have reduced test code, as many tests rely on
new test framework code in 0.10 and later, but the implementation code
is identical. Work to improve that is certainly welcome.
