Also as another alternative we might put the new behavior under an
option. Thus those clients that want this behavior can get it, and
otherwise old clients don't just break. Then we can properly deprecate
the option and change the default then. If this makes any darn sense.
Because the final option is a revert and I don't think anyone here
wants that.
