Well, we probably all agree that adding *new* functionality from 1.2
to kaffe is uncontroversial; it's making backward-incomptabile changes
that is questionable. I think there's a lot more of the former than
the latter; but in any case, you'll have to ask Tim and Transvirtual
their opinion/strategy on this question.
