Of course we will aim to ship the final 2.6.27, but with a release date
looming, the fact that something should be fixed as we track upstream
doesn't mean that we can stop paying attention to it.

If possible, we should avoid breaking this in Intrepid in the first place,
rather than breaking it and fixing it later.

There is supposed to be; exactly this has been intended from the start.
There seem to be some problems with the implementation, though, and there's
a ticket open with the Canonical IS team about it (#26726).
