To clarify, if there were some strong motivation --- e.g. if this
were resolving some security problem --- then I would be all for
breaking compatibility in this way. What's confusing to me is that I
just don't see the motivation. Why wouldn't someone that wants this
functionality be able to pass a flag for it?
Is the idea that without a flag it's easier to teach or something?
Hoping that clarifies,
