Please note that this temporary backward compatability happens to be an
important part of most ffi code currently in existence (at least, all the code
that I know and/or care about). I guess you all know this but I just want to
make sure that you don't break working code in the rush to move forwards.
ps I have a feeling of feeping creaturism as I watch this list - a nice simple
design seems to be getting more complex.
