It still would be good if Emacs developers provided the compatibility
code after every backward-incompatible change for maintainers of
external Emacs packages.  For example, the change in the interface
of the function `split-string' causes Emacs packages I'm maintaining
to fail.  I'm not against changes if they are for the better, but
I think that authors of these changes could write some kind of
function wrappers that will work the same for all Emacs versions
instead of forcing maintainers of external Emacs packages to invent
their own workarounds.
