 * milestone:  2.3 => 2.4


 Since 4.2, there have been a number of weird tickets opened on WP Trac
 related to utf8mb4 updates, including the loss of data in some cases where
 one odd collation is changed to another. The benefits of making the move
 in BP are pretty modest, so I'd say it's not worth the risk of rushing
 into this. Let's continue the task in 2.4, once things have settled down
 in WP.
