Opcode compatible division

I was wondering if it would be possible to add two new opcodes to the
VM language which I will refer to as ExactDivide and IntegerDivide and
keep the current opcode with its current behavior?

Even if there was no way in the actual language to generate the
CurrentDivide opcode, its existance would allow modules compiled and
distributed under the current system to continue to work with future
revisions.

I haven't thought this through that much, so it may be a totally
stupid idea, but I thought it might fix some of the issues with
backwards compatibility.
