Yes, It was one idea (after midnight :-) how to keep backward
compatibility for next few releases, but better solution is keep old
binaries for couple of release cycles.

I agree, I only want to start discussion about new command which will
replace old binaries. Old binaries will be marked as obsolete and they
will be removed e.g. in 9.0. Until we do not have the new command we can
not start thinking about remove old one. I think we can have new command
ready for 8.4.
