Oh, come on. Removing the C-style for loop is not what took up time in this release cycle. What took up time is the API guidelines, the new collection model, and other standard library quality work—things which, in hindsight, are prerequisites for binary compatibility anyway, because linking against a different version doesn't count for much when all the names and calls have changed anyway.
