Just to make sure everybody understands my position here.  I don't care at
all about source compatability.  Rip the stupid thing out, and be done
with it.  But, can we come to a consensus about when we are going to
maintain compatability, and when we won't?  It is VERY difficult to make
the "right" decision, when we sometimes want source compatability at all
costs, and sometimes we don't care.
