As said, I very much agree with the suggestion, but I don't see your
patch in staging yet.

Should I either (with the goal of ideally making the 4.6 release, and of
course unless somebody else has other issues with the patch or this
specific change):

* Add the new file your patch added again in my patch;

* If it's about to be commited soon (?) wait for your patch to make it
into staging (this I think would be the best path, if possible), or

* Leave it as it is for now and follow up post-4.6?
