I'm a little skeptical about the severity since the user is prompted to
confirm the deletion of the file and the prompt lists the actual file it
is going to delete.

I did want to request a freeze exception for the 7.2 final release
(which I'm working on now) as there were many security-related fixes
made in 7.2 as well as improvements to some of the fixes that are
present in 7.1.314-3.  I realize though that this exception will
probably be met with resistance since it's a new upstream release.
