I sent a grand total of two sentances to that bug report.
I will assume that "I have not had any time to work on it" did not
cause that misunderstanding. This leaves:

It was, and continues to be the case that the programs are not switch
compatable by default.

Apparently, then you feel that "I don't want to break [...] scripts"
is a technical objection within the purvue of the technical committee
to overrule.

Very interesting, especially in light of the technical committee's
forcing of changes to dpkg that were known to be likely to break things
badly, and indeed resulted in doing so.

I have to say that while I respect the members of the technical committee,
by current respect for the committee as a whole is rapidly plummeting.
