I am sorry, I was in a bad mood and interpreted your "that the proposed
change is not backward compatible" as you had not read the EEP since it
states up front under "Backwards Compatibility" that "This change is
therefore fully backwards compatible".

> backward incompatibility? Yes or no?

It should be obvious to anyone that has read this thread that that question
can not be answered with a simple yes or no.
