I checked the indent fix into the wrong branch in my repo. It's in the other patch. I could fix that if desired.
The reason for making the base class public is to allow subclassing. Perhaps that is not needed for Compat32, though.
I don't think that the policy argument obsoletes the existing method options. It is easier to write:
than it is to write
That is, when you want to make a change in just one method call, as opposed to globally, then the existing arguments are more convenient.
That said, a section in What's New describing when it might be a good idea to move to a global policy setting vs using the existing arguments may be worthwhile.
