And the 7.0 commit message says something like

if (paramHashValues.containsKey(key)) {
values = paramHashValues.get(key);
} else {
values = new ArrayList(1);
paramHashValues.put(key, values);
values.ensureCapacity(values.size() + newValues.length);
for (String newValue : newValues) {

which means that if a hash-collision is detected the values are added to the valueset (instead of modifying the hash algorithm).

The actual release note says:

Improve performance of parameter processing for GET and POST requests. Also add an option to limit the maximum number of parameters processed per request. This defaults to 10000. Excessive parameters are ignored. Note that FailedRequestFilter can be used to reject the request if some parameters were ignored. (markt/kkolinko)

I have it POST to a system which filters every exception to a category (with sql statements per category). Depending on the category I have a warn / alert threshold set in Munin. If a service operations issue happens (table X is marked as crashed) I notice in 5 minutes, PEBKACs have a high threshold. I know it before they call.
