You probably already figured this out, but I want to be explicit just in

I think we want the first patch of this series to graduate before v2.15,
even if the rest doesn't make it. It tweaks a new syntax introduced
earlier in this cycle by jk/trailers-parse. If we ship without the
tweak, then we'll have to support the colon-delimiter to remain
backwards-compatible.
