We don't have that option, as we're talking about changing the behavior 
of calling IFoo.

The options are:

* changing the signature of calling IFoo in a backwards incompatible 
way, with various transition strategies.

* changing the signature of calling IFoo in an almost backwards 
compatible way (breaking tuple adaptation)

* adding new methods to IFoo.
