So, bugfix turnaround time on this one is... five months?!
Minecraft only had snowfall before biomes were introduced — you were either on a Snowy Map or a Not Snowy Map. So I guess it's less like a bug fix and more like removing a feature in a major redesign, and then bringing it back when it can be relevant again?
The Halloween update was like iMovie '08, is what I'm saying.
