While I might have yelled against this kind of stuff when that was being
discussed for git/sid/experimental, I think we can only establish that
Raphaël took objections into account, and compatibility remained.

I'm quite sure that's not the kind of big changes which could be
“sneaked” into squeeze-backports, so I'm not sure rehashing the past is
the way to go forward.
