To be honest, I'm a bit worried about doing that kind of changes (mostly 
connection pooling) at the last minute before a release, but if you are 
confident that they can be compiled out by default and not cause any 
side-effects and would not delay the release, then let's try to fit them 
in 4.4.

But once again it's not just my call: I am just trying to facilitate the 
release process between all the developers. So far only you and Assefa 
have replied to my call for a 4.4 release plan... what do the other 
developers think of my proposed plan?
