Which are it has to be said very commonly used types!

It seems very worrying that 1.35 users are going to be deliberately broken
to help out <= 1.34.1 users who were broken accidentally. Is there really no
plan to help out users load their 1.35 files in 1.36? Even if this can't be
rectified within the library through a workaround, maybe a more independent
(standalone?) utility could be provided? I have no familiarity with the
internals of the library but if there is some way I can help in this regard,
I'd be happy to try.
