I agree that we should avoid breaking changes on this on a dot release.
It's not really a bugfix but a semantic change. That said, can you
elaborate on "Groovy has enough issues with breaking changes"? In general
we do a pretty good job I think to preserve compatibility. What problems
did you face? Were those problems documented as breaking changes? If not,
were they simply bugs?
