That's a bad idea.

I would do (3). This provides a clearer signal that V4L1-only apps need
to use libv4l1, or otherwise will stop working.

Of course, the better is to remove V4L1 support from those old apps.
There are a number of applications that support both API's. So, it
is time to remove V4L1 support from them.
