So i've seen on the forum over the years arguments about auto-decoding (mostly) and some other things. Things that have been considered mistakes, and cannot be corrected because of the breaking changes it would create. And I always wonder why not make a solution to the tune of a flag that makes things work as they used too, and make the new behavior default.

dmd --UseAutoDecoding

That way the breaking change was easily fixable, and the mistakes of the past not forever. Is it just the cost of maintenance?
