 I would like to make sure are aware that the scope of the problem extends
 into custom feeds -- making custom feeds that do not render posts unusable
 (don't render at all as of 4.7) -- there have been complaints by plugin
 authors.  The title of this ticket does not completely describe the scope
 of the issue.

 Additionally, new conditionals were added to solve a long standing problem
 where `is_home()` and `is_feed()` are never simultaneously true.  Rather
 than change the behavior expected by plugin and theme authors, a new set
 of conditionals the only way forward to distinguish home/custom feeds from
 just "any" feed.  See #20899 and #11053.

 Is there any way to keep this in the 4.7.1 milestone? What can I do to
