Changing the behaviour of existing APIs in a backward incompatible way
is a Bad Thing (TM). IMHO, The only acceptable exception is if the API
had different behaviour from the documentation to begin with (i.e. the
API was broken).
And I suggest rushing up a 2.6.3 (even if just a beta or rc) to
discourage people from migrating to 2.6.2.
