I think backporting only the fix should (hopefully) be easier (unless
the commit is entangled with lots of other changes happening between
3.4 and 3.8).

Maybe both can be done, but jordi says that backporting the entire
evolution "is not fun".

Personally, I'm not going to work on either though... someone else
will need to take on the task that motivates them.

So we can go either way or both ways.

If you're interested in working on evolution, please contact jordi.
