Breaking compatibility was a side effect of getting all of the BBDB code
copyright assigned, so that it could be included in GNU.

Maybe some of the hacks are no longer required with BBDB 3.x?  And if
they are, it would be good if BBDB users would file bugs about why the
hacks are needed.  Now that BBDB 3.x is in GNU ELPA BBDB bugs should
actually be fixable (unlike 2.x bugs for which there is no choice but to
hack workarounds).
