Which is basically what should happen until those packages are fixed,
since SA (>=3) makes those packages unuseable.

An easier solution is to provide both the older API information and
the newer API information in the response for now, since there's no
reason to break compatibility like has been done.

The major change that I'm aware of is the nonsensical change of 'hits'
to 'score'[1] in the output. Just provide both 'hits' and 'score' and
this particular problem will go away. [This was the major issue facing
spamass-milter, which is fixed in -7 by checking for the other if it
can't find the first.]
