A totally fresh example hitted me earlier today: old-style backquotes.
My package contains lots of them, I can easily rewrite them using the
new style but I have to (I want to) be sure it could work with emacs <
19.29 (or so).

Wrapping something like:

(if (and (> emacs-major-version 19)
         (> emacs-minor-version 29))
   (defmacro my-modern-macro...)
  (defmacro my-old-style-macro))

Is that the best way ?
