I don't think a lot of thought is going into 1.2 compatibility. I'm not 
sure what the current state of the compat layer is, but I think the 
bigger problem is that mixing compat calls with 1.3 APIs is likely to 
blow up in ways we haven't even thought about, and it's not clear where 
the line is drawn between the two APIs.

I think people are asking me to make a decision about this, and I don't 
have one yet. Also: I'm not actually sure I'm the guy that gets to make 
that sort of decision.

Also: holy crap, am I the guy that gets to make that sort of decision?!
