 Replying to [comment:57 nacin]:
 > It makes WP_Screen behave as a registry of singletons.

 '[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singleton_pattern Singleton]' does not
 accept plural form. :)

 What the patch does is store all the WP_Screen instances in a static
 property on the WP_Screen class.

 Maybe this:

 $screen = WP_Screen::get( $hook_name );

 could be replaced with this:

 WP_Screen::get( $hook_name )->set_as_current();

 to keep with our coding standards.

 +1 otherwise.
