Thing is, 3.0 (quilt) is an accepted source format, 3.0 (dpatch) isn't
(thankfully). It wasn't me who decided that, I didn't make 3.0 (quilt) a
"new standard". It's the people who migrate towards it who are making it
so. While dpatch and 3.0 (quilt) don't necessarily conflict, for the
vast majority of cases, 3.0 (quilt) should be an improvement over
dpatch, and that is one of the driving forces behind the deprecation.
My plan, which still stands, is to remove dpatch in 6 years time. I'm
fairly sure we can come to an agreement within that timeframe.
