The `(aref element 0)` trick is the only one that `soap-client` uses.  All
other struct usage is via accessor functions, the rest of the code does not
assume they are vectors.  It seems to me that `cl-old-struct-compat-mode` is
not needed.

Thomas, will you prepare the patch for soap-client?

Thanks,
