I understand your reasons but a compatibility mode (if that is
feasible at all) would allow us to ditch Script-Fu in favor of
Tiny-Fu. If no such mode is available we will have to continue to ship
Script-Fu for quite a while. I don't think we can just tell people
that all their scripts won't work any longer when they update GIMP the
next time.
