Jupp. Is there any technical chance the we can use the deprecation mechanism
or something like this to inform developers that they are not fully
complying to a changed contract?
Still, for me it feels like the original interface should have included this
and I think it would be nice if we have an exit strategy for this (and
similar) situations where the original interface was wrong. I consider
the solution that introduce an additional interface in the long term to be
less than optimal. (Except if someone has a good explanation that I can
give to new developers why we made that distinction in the first place.)
