 I wonder if the following solution may be acceptable.  Since the
 change implies a difference in ABI, would it be possible to schedule
 it for a next major release (for instance, release 10)?  I also
 wonder, if the change could go into -current at this point; as I
 understand, -current is not expected to maintain strict binary
 I suppose that the proper approach to adding this might involve adding
 #ifdef-s that checks for COMPAT_XX options.  Though, I think that a
 more proper implementation would be to check at runtime for the module
 version, and decide upon what buffer length for parameter passing
 could be used accordingly.  I could work this code out, in principle;
 I would appreciate a suggestion on what would be the best, most
 compatible with the tradition, way to handle the hard-coded constant
 in the header file.
