This is something I just don't understand, why is some psuedo-arbitrary
number somehow MORE confusing/damaging than some convoluted upgrade

The only negative (which is bs) of doing so is keeping around multiple
compat libraries for the same release, which we can simply decide not
to do.

(meaning, for your example there does not need to be a
shipped in some compat package unless someone really wants to)
