Only if you think this makes more sense. I do not have a strong opinion.

And we can change the implementation at any time. The real problem is

understand the problem space better ;) Just I think that the changelog
could say a bit more, to explain why do we need this patch. IOW, explain
the problem and how/why this patch helps.
