Good point.

Perhaps after Bison 2.0 comes out, we should have a "stable" branch
that has just bug fixes and is suitable for people who can't or don't
want to change their grammars, and a "main" branch that has useful but
incompatible changes like these.  Or on second thought maybe not; it'd
be more work (and more confusing) to have two public branches.  (Can
you tell that I don't feel decisive right now?  :-)
