While I agree the mailbox module is basically useless right now, the fact that we are using the rc phase for common bug fixing means the rc phase has become useless too. That may become a quality problem in the middle term. On the other hand, if the RM refused all non-trivial patches during the rc phase, that would force people to stop playing games with the release process. The mailbox module's brokenness was, after all, known for quite some time.

As teh reporter of that bug I should like to say in Victor's, Antoine's and David's support that the module is so broken without this patch that the module should not really have been included in a production release.
Even if the current patch is broken, I believe the results of using that code would be less negative than the results of using the module from the previous release.
