 It depends on how many consumers of the old API they are and how hard
 they are to fix.
 If there aren't many and the changes are straightforward, it's
 probably better to patch them. If there are a lot, probably we'll move

 (For anyone reading this PR, note the existence of PR 49442 with
 patches for 1.x.)
