In that case, I think we shouldn't require 2.3 compatibility. There
is no reason to deliberately break it either, of course.

As for the comment: It apparently *is* misleading, George mistakenly
took it as a requirement for future changes, rather than a factual
statement about the present (even though it uses the tense of simple
present). Anybody breaking 2.3 compatibility will have to remember
to remove the comment, which he likely won't.
