What if the feature does break compatibility with old features?
What if it is "truly" a new feature?

One example would be that we are considering reworking
pg_dump/restore a bit to support batch uploads and interactive mode.
It would not break compatibility with anything but would
greatly enhance one's ability to actually backup and restore
large volume sets.
