Working on the DOM code this weekend, I realized that quite a few
things will be broken by going to the most recent draft.  How
important is backwards compatibility with the current DOM code?  

	I'm not sure how much existing DOM code is out there that will
be broken by incompatible changes, because I'm not sure if people were
seriously using it or not.  So if you're using the current DOM code
for something, please let me know so I can gauge how important
compatibility is.

And as soon as he was sure that he was dead, he got up and shook himself, and
looked around, and there waiting for him on the bed was his wife, with long
claws out, and her eyes blazing like a green cat ready to spring.
