Hi Philip,

See my response to your comments below.

But more importantly, since now the plan is to add those features to
python.el, which is built-in but also extracted to be distributed on
ELPA for Emacs ≥ 24.4 --- have you thought of a scheme whereby one could
use new Emacs features on those kinds of packages, but then
automatically stick a (require 'compat) at the top of their ELPA

I'm also using the MODES argument of the `interactive' form.  But yes, I
have no good reason to require 28 other than being unfamiliar/not
remembering the history of the new features, which makes it hard to
"promise" compatibility with older Emacsen.

Sure, I'll will do that.
