My point is that changing the major version from 3 to 4 *will* break
things. We have to prepare the community to support such change.

For example, advice to replace "if major_version == 3:  ... else: ..."
with "if major_version >= 3:  ... else: ...".

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death.
