Trying to understand a bug report

Hi all,

If you read the following bug report:

Take note of its last update at the bottom, dec 19. 2007, where we can read:

"The mysql client program now ignores Unicode byte order mark (BOM)
characters at the beginning of input files. Previously, it read them
and sent them to the server, resulting in a syntax error."

By "mysql client program", do they mean ONLY the mysql command line program, or does it automatically include "peripheral" apps like mysqlimport?

Now, if you follow that issue over there on Mysql Forge:

It takes up the same issue specifically for mysqlimport -- so that means the answer to my question above is 'yes', right?

Now, on that page, it says "Version: Server-7.0". Does that really mean this fix is planned for mysqlimport in MySQL Server *7*?

Just checking here... I'd like to understand. I have to say, if I read it right, I'll be absolutely FLOORED by this. :-(
