Yeah, it would be quite bad to have this in a release since then we'd
have to say something like "for Emacs 26 change your aliases this way,
but then for other versions change them back that way (and if you're
switching between versions, tough luck)". I've marked this as release
blocking so we don't forget.

Yes, that's basically what I had in mind, although I'll probably add a
bit more explanation to the doc.
