I agree, I've had this very conversation with Kent as well. The merge of
it has gone a lot worse than I had feared, and the resulting series at
this point is a non-bisectable mess. The fallback plan was to pull it
from the 3.13 tree and shove it into a 3.14 tree with more for-next
simmering.

It is in progress, just takes a while...
