Eric, if this change breaks existing users, then it gets reverted.
That's just fundamental.

No RFC's are in the lreast relevant when compared to "this broke
existing users".

If you're not willing to do the work to fix it, I will revert that
commit. Because that's how it works - you can't ask other people to
fix the breakage you introduced.

It really is that simple. We do not allow developers to break things
and then step away and say "not my problem".
