Comment (by swissspidy):

 Given the scope of the problem, it's best to fix it rather sooner than
 later. Either by reverting [38929] for 4.7.1 and fixing things in 4.8, or
 by making this a targeted regression fix as suggested by @dd32.

 A patch without the getter methods seems doable, but it would make testing
 a bit more difficult. Also, since there seems to be a shift between minor
 and major releases, we're more likely to introduce new functions in point
 releases in the future.

 I don't feel strongly about it either way, but a revert might be the
 safest bet if we can't get enough testing for this in time for 4.7.1.
