For what it's worth, I don't really agree with Jonathan Hull on this. If we're going to remove the band-aid, we might as well rip it off now; there's no reason to wait for people to write more code for us to break.

My point was simply that the burden of proof is now on those proposing to revert SE-0025, and the core team shouldn't accept this proposal unless they are satisfied that the burden has clearly been met.
