Is it possible to support both for a release or two to give people time
to migrate and have an actual implementation to test against as they
work to port their scripts?  The alternative is that given that we don't
provide public beta binaries or nightly snapshot binaries, we'd be
requiring people who want to port, test and release their ports on "flag
day" to build from CVS to test.
