Thanks Bastien. I think it is good to have a clear statement on this,
even if not everyone agrees, as it makes things explicit. I
suspect this will need to be reviewed after each release of a new Emacs
version though as the effort to maintain backwards compatibility will
depend on what has changed in Emacs. Especially given that Emacs release
cycles seem to be getting shorter.
