If Knut's analysis holds (I think it does), how do you see backward
compatibility being a problem, Rick? It seems to me this could
potentially trip up developers used to the old Derby behavior, but not
apps developed against Derby with the existing behavior. I'd say that is
an accentable price to pay in this case, given proper release note heads
