On the upside, going through the list of severity pushes  I can spot only aptitude from our reverse build-dependencies – and while it is indeed using that API, it will stop doing so in the next upload (#853316) so the practical effect is rather low (assuming we can convince mafm to upload before we do I guess). On a more theoretical note isn't there some way to emit a function with the old mangle calling the new mangle (or duplicating it)? I can't really believe that all of libstdc++6 doesn't contain a single abitagged conversion operator, so I would presume they managed to pull it of somehow (or we would be looking at v7 everywhere now).
