Why do you need long term backwards compatibility?
It would be nice for bootstrapping... now that we need dmd to
build dmd, it'd be really annoying if you need to install
version X-3 to compile version X-2 to compile X-1 to finally
compile version X just because of some stdlib instability.
Don't forget about differences in FE versions between dmd/ldc/gdc
- and the fact you want distribute most performant build possible.
