I'm a -1 on this as well.

We're a pretty forward-thinking bunch of people, and for the most part  
we either run the latest stable or HEAD. At the very least we run the  
latest 0.x release (0.6 currently) to get the latest features in  
plugins. So my question is: why would features from a 0.7 version of a  
plugin be backported to a 0.6 version of that plugin? If you want the  
features, upgrade your habari install and go frolic in the meadows  
with the ponies.
