time is the only reason. 

although we planned to backport several things from trunk (unstable) to
2.0-ongoing, it was never our intent to backport everything that was
done there (in some cases, it would be impossible).

in this particular case, i've just been too busy with work relating to
the OS X native version, and other features relating to the SAE version,
to think about back-porting this from trunk to 2.0-ongoing. 

once we hit the 2nd half of october, my focus will shift towards
"reintegrating" what is currently in trunk and 2.0-ongoing (where lots
and lots of changes have been implemented). i can't promise that it will
be backported then either, but it might.
