Note there were certain people who complaind that the wdc
changes broke their ports, including private ones.
(maybe because missed changes didn't cause compile errors BTW)
I just thought if we could avoid MD changes we would get less
compalaints, so I proposed the compatible macros even though
I knew they were a bit ugly. But if the changes are actually
necessary, we don't have to hesitate at such compalaints
but just fix botches.
