It is likely to be impossible (or at least, infeasibly difficult) to
remain compatible with Trac 0.9.x whilst also significantly improving
FieldStorage. Trac 0.9.x fiddles rather invasively with the FieldStorage

Perhaps you could upgrade the Trac in question to a development version
too? Trac 0.10dev is supposed to be approaching release soon, so it
would hopefully be fairly stable.
