FWIW, I agree with both Eli and those who want the regression fixed.

1. Each place such a prompting function is used, we should pick
the right function.  If `yes-or-no-p' is not right for a given
occurrence, and `y-or-n-p' is right, then let's fix that.

2. User preferences vary.  Some users never want to respond to
a `yes-or-no-p' prompt.  That's their choice.  It should be easy
for them to express their choice and have Emacs respect it.

(I do not recommend that a user replace all `yes-or-no-p' behavior
by `y-or-n-p' behavior.  But that's up to the user.)
