I mostly agree. However, the change in question was a purely *cosmetical*
one (IMHO the client code wouldn't be improved much) and it would also
introduce other problems. So, even without considering existing client code
I'm not convinced it would have been a good idea. But this isn't relevant
anymore as we're now discussing a change that does not break existing code.
