I have not (yet) formed an opinion on the patch itself, as indeed it came in quite
close to or even during RC, and we try to limit changes in that time (we did not
quite succeed this time around, but we still tried!).

I can't say whether other backends need the same change; do note that a
frontend change regarding domain_id was committed in r2871. I don't know
whether this changes the usefulness of your patch at all.

One issue is that the luabackend is not currently part of our automated
regression tests; assistance in this area is welcome.

Finally, backend patches work best for us if they have been cleared
by the author or maintainer of the backend - in this case, that's
Frederik Danerklint, I believe. His blessing could help speed the patch
into SVN (but it will still be after 3.2).
