Excellent summary. I agree that #3 makes sense. The documentation
should make it clear that the older functions will be moved out of
core and into a compatibility library for 0.6. Then we'll gradually
transition users to the new API.
I hope this can be a viable strategy for major API changes in the
future. Deprecation > Compatibility file > Removal.
