Comment (by mikeschroder):

 I’m concerned that, presuming I understand the bug properly, and after
 testing (DH is affected by this), for most users, prior to applying the
 patch, Imagick will usually work fine for resizing images.

 After the patch, WP will stop using Imagick even if it was, from those
 users' perspectives, working as intended.

 I don’t feel strongly against the suggested route, but if we do blacklist
 the version, we need to notify hosts ASAP so that when 4.6 comes out,
 they’ve updated already.

 Basically, we'd need to be loud about it.

 Either way, a post on Make as a notification, followed by outreach to get
 Imagick upgraded makes sense to me here.
