Bentley makes some excellent points here. There is another point that
underscores his position.

I think you're misrepresenting my position. I'm not saying "no backwards-incompatible changes" and no sane person would. Your post comes close to saying "any backwards-incompatible changes", but I don't think that's what you mean.

I think the right answer is "it depends", and that means looking at the specific case.

I think you'd be justified in complaining if tla were to arbitrarily change "get" to "checkout", without leaving a backwards-compatibility alias.

I didn't consider the removal of '--report' to be a bad thing, although I'd have prefered some kind of warning that it had gone away, and a backwards-compatibility alias would have been nice. I think that, on the whole, regularizing that interface is worth the cost of fixing scripts.
