I don't think that that really helps. If you're going to depend on base
3.1, you might as well just depend on base 4 and be more future-proof.
The base-compat package needs to claim to have the same API as the old
base, because the point is that things just keep on working (except in
the few cases, like the Arrow split, where that isn't possible).
