Where lies the "break even point", how much does being backwards 
compatibel cost versus this other maintenance with regards to the ability 
/ possibility to take bigger / different development steps? Now, I know 
you can't put a percentage on that ;) Just me wondering, looking at what 
happened in the Python world with 2 & 3. Yesterday I 'broke' my mesh 
macro's that are also in 3.7 by adding a dictionary and by changing the 
way resolution is set...
