The last post in the tracker says:

Jani, I discussed this with Ilia earlier today and it *is* a BC breaking
change in PHP 5.1.2 - all other versions do not do this (including PHP
4.4.x or 5.1.1). Therefore it is a bug and it should be addressed.
Dmitry, if you feel otherwise, please close it then.

So it's not yet clear what will happen with back compatibility.
