No, only in 5.3 (CVS HEAD).

The changes are considered too intrusive to go into the 5.0.x branch.

Basically, the intention is that upgrading to a later 5.0.x release
will, at a minimum, be harmless. Nothing should break, and nothing
should give different results (except in cases where the original
version gives a completely wrong result, i.e. an outright bug).

The datum conversion will be in any 5.3/5.4 releases.
