fyi: I've been running that patch for a while in our staging 
environment. As far as I can tell it works. Though we haven't tested it 
with older browsers such as IE6 (we do not have that requirement) nor 
with all of the API clients we see (java, python, etc., we do have that 

Hopefully we're bringing that patch into our production environment 
within the next couple of weeks, and then we should see results later 
that week.

The only thing that worries me is that Eric calls this a "nasty/crazy 
solution". :p Not sure why. Seems to me it's a rather smart solution 
that perhaps in the future would deserve to be the default.

A related question: is it possible to get insight in what's in the 
unicorn queue and for how long requests have been queued there?
