[edit] Have You Ever Wondered...?

Is it not true, that by keeping compatibility we grow the number of APIs we have to maintain? For how long can this be sustained?

If you know how to use end of life procedures as described in Chapter 19, you can send you old APIs to black hole smoothly while keeping backward compatibility.
