I completely disagree.  I explicitly disagreed with this because I was
afraid of the backlash from the users, and my concerns were ignored.
The only reason that I agreed to it was to move forward, and it seems
that was the wrong decision for me to make.

I disagree.  We should have kept the shim in so that people could
easily transition from 2.9 to 3.0, as what Don said earlier.

Why are you so dead set against adding a shim into core?
