What you say is true.  However it would be much clearer that you
understand that your new milter breaks a lot of existing and even in
some cases carefully crafted and well tested code on many mailservers
if you had apologised for it once more instead of simply snipping the
part of the OP's mail which mentions it.

You can expect administrators who find themselves having to script
their way around your changes to wonder if there might be a package
which both provides equivalent functionality and has a stable API.
