That answer's easy.  The old hack was ~1k-2k LoC, the entire original
Windows 95 implementation.  The new hack is some ~50-100 LoC, but as
usual there are side effects of the change we have not yet tracked down.

Yes it will affect adoption, and that is not a reason to hold up further
progress towards release.  How many people refuse a .0 release anyways?
The release is what it is.
