I won't leave it aside, because this discussion is not theoretical to 
me: if you break backward compatibility, you put me in trouble. It's as 
simple as that.

Otherwise I have no objection, and never had any objection, to any 
change in Smalltalk, Squeak, the French government, the recipe for 
pancakes or the US constitution. "Live and let live" is my motto; 
please let me live, don't break my code.

If you provide a safe way to convert my packages to your new syntax, 
without reformatting them in the process, I have no objection whatsoever 
to your ideas.

I would even be happy if that makes you happy :)
