  what you say here.

Mark a region, immediately press e.g. "A".  The region is zapped and
replaced by an A.

That used to insert an A at the insert point since TECO emacs until a
few releases back.

(There is also an implicit mode in the new behavioutr: Only regions just
created exhibit the incompatible zap behavioutr.)

  In any case, whenever a backward-incompatible change happens, there's
  usually a way, called out in NEWS, to get back old behavior.

How about keeping the accepted interface and document in NEWS how to
make it work in a new, incompatible way?
