I suppose that's a philosophical point. But I do object to breaking the
existing API. I'd much rather see an extra flag like this added as a new
function (if we can't stick it in the Theme where it won't hurt anyone), so
existing configs would continue working. The fact that this patch had to
update three configs that don't use the new feature tells me it's broken.
