This is an unnecessarily belittling, suppressive attitude to a change
suggestion. Lua's development history shows that the team reserve the
right to break compatibility between versions - they don't take it
lightly, and when possible they include an optional emulation of the
old way, but it does happen. Even for things that seem to be a mostly
a matter of taste, like unpack() becoming table.unpack().
