We are not doing this to break people's code, but because there is
cost to keeping experimental features forever in the language.

Hopefully mochiweb will continue to work if we keep the apply/3 and
error_handler hacks; if not, the maintainers of Mochiweb and we in
the OTP team could probably come up with some solution to keep
Mochiweb working.
