In SW development a lot of people mixup the type of break: configurational,
behavioral, and functional. One does not necessarily have to imply the other(s).
In any case, this need for backwards compatibilty kills innovation and
advancement. I won't go into details, since it may sound like ranting.

What I want to say though is that Apache's compat modules are a great solution
and I hoped more projects would use this approach.
