Personally, I'd wait.  Even if you say the new interface is
undocumented and unsupported, if you publish 2.60 that way, either
people will switch from the old undocumented method to the new
undocumented method (in which case you're stuck with the new one, and
you don't want this), or people will not switch (in which case why
bother?).
