[Python-Dev] when to fix cross-version bugs?

I recently committed a fix for unicodeobject.c so that the %d, %i, and %u format specifiers always output values 
(otherwise, in subclasses, the str() was used instead).

Should this be fixed in 3.3 as well?

What guidelines determine when a bug is fixed in previous versions?
