Couldn't you extend the current API? Send a flag to the sub that indicates you wish the behavior to be different, thusly not breaking prexisting uses.

    Or if that is a "bad" idea due to variable number of arguments or something like that, why not simply introduce a new call, parallell to the old one, something like connect_with_config or some such. Then old users would be safe, and new users could choose which they need.
