Or course this is Apache's problem. You can't have your cake and eat
it too. If you accept code for a project you accept the community as
well. Say Apache accepts a project like Open Office, should we ignore
the existing community and not concern ourselves with backward
compatibility for that project as well, because the original code
wasn't birthed at Apache?
