Don't you think that,
since this change is going to break existing
code significantly, it should deserve a major change
in version numbering also?
Personally, when I upgrade from version n.m to version
n.m+1 I expect that nothing differs but bug fixes or minor
changes. And, a fortiori, that my programs that ran on n.m
will still run flawlessly on n.m+1. I think that many people
will fall in the trap of upgrading and finding their
(production?) code broken; it is not
Note: breaking other's
code is not fair, but upgrading without reading release
notes is unsafe: I agree!
