If you need to install an extension to enable the typography, then why is
it even in core in the first place?
Also, I really hope there was no malicious intention behind this change.
Because the originally uploaded patch set (i.e., PS1, or the patch that
people initially get an email about) was completely different from the
patch that was merged. Changing the subject of patches so suddenly and
drastically is quick and dirty move to hide changes from people who
subscribe to the new patchset feed. Please don't do that again in the
