I agree that *one* report like this doesn't necessarily mean that we
need to turn it off, if Nick is happy to just fix up his script and
it's all local.
However, I suspect we'll see more. And once that happens, we're not
going to keep a default that breaks peoples old scripts, and we're
going to have to rely on distributions (or users) explicitly setting
Compatibility is just too important.
