This time, I tried to start a discussion first, and I got no response.
There were attempts to modernize the codebase about a year ago. AFAICS
there was no discussion then.
What was that saying: "don't vote, don't complain"? I'd like some
discussion, that's all.

I hear that the consensus is "new stuff is for new code, or at least
whenever one happens to change old code fixing the bugs".
I'm not quite sure whether that's a good idea, we should at least try to
achieve some consistency
-- and not necessarily sticking to the bottom line.
Or maybe I'm too old school seeing major version changes as necessitating a
porting effort ;-)
