I don't mean to harp on about this, but statements like that are 
incredibly dangerous. If you want people to use your software, you can't 
leave backwards compatibility as an after-thought. Unfortunately, 
perfect is quite often the enemy of good when it comes to releasing 
software that is actually used in the wild, as is grokcore.view.
