No, legacy = the foundation everything else builds on.  Change it at
the risk of forcing everyone who uses your product to rebuild
everything from scratch.  In my opinion, a new version of something
isn't better unless it is also completely backwards compatible.  It's
not a fashion show - things aren't better just because they are
