Er, *what*? We're in mid development cycle, we are nowhere near
release. When exactly would you have us make major changes?
In any case, what I understood Robert to be proposing was an add-on
feature that could be implemented in one datatype at a time. Not
a global flag day. We couldn't really do the latter anyway without
making life very unpleasant for authors of extension datatypes.
