From my user experience and what I see on a number of coworkers, users
tend to make big jumps when they need a new feature, so in practice,
not offering the option in a version or two would probably not affect
most users, especially the ones still relying on the old behaviour. So
I don't see much benefit in waiting for repurposing the option.

Just my 2 cents,
Willy
