I don't think the "experimental" defense will stand in this case: this
function was present in 2 Emacs releases.

It also is easy to provide a back-compatibility shim in this case, so
I think we should.  Back-compatibility is nicer to users.

But since others seem to disagree, I'll let John decide on this.
