Haven't got time to look yet but I suppose from what you're saying that 
5.79 fixes the file: redirect bug, which is good. That said, are we 
sure it's a good candidate (i.e stable enough) to put into production?

I realize that updating lwp is starting to be important and urgent, I 
just would not want to regret any hasty move.
