As I said in a former message: Would it be possible to do
this patch in a way that the old library is still around? I
would really like to keep that up as is for compatibility

I do see the need that the client libraries need to be
worked on, but I would like to be kind to our library users.
At the point when the new library provides new and cool
features, people will switch themselves because they need
