I don't see how this resolves the backward-compatibility issue, sorry.

Once again, we are not talking about adding a new feature from
scratch, we are talking about changing a very old behavior.  So
whether it's more natural or not is of secondary importance for this
decision.

I'm okay with making this conditional on some user option, but I
object to an unconditional change.

In any case, we don't add new features on the release branch, we only
fix bugs there.

Thanks.
