Well, let me say for my part that I hope it's clear that we aren't
hell-bent on gratuitously changing LaTeX. If we decide to start
breaking things, please complain loudly.
Our Social Contract states that "Our Priorities are Our Users and Free
Software". User needs are as important to us as freedom, and we
wouldn't be serving our users if we broke LaTeX document compatibility.
