No one has said it should not change.  Just that it breaks all users
existing work when it changes in non-backwards compatible ways.

The non-productive part is that every user who has ever built anything
of non-stable components has to deal with the problem on an individual
basis.   Is there any centralized approach to converting something
that worked on CentOS6 to run on CentOS7?   Does the program that is
supposed to try to automatically upgrade versions have any tricks
hidden away to fix things so they work after the upgrade, and could
any of them be run separately?
