Hi Mehdi!

Good reasons or not, there are a few guidelines when it comes
to changing public interfaces:
- There has to be a discussion of the change. Alternatively,
  open a bugzilla ticket and provide reasons and the proposed
  solution/patch for inspection (yes, even committers should
  do that)
- It's good practice to call a vote after the pros and cons
  of the change have been laid out.
- It's also good practice to deprecate functionality which is
  going to be removed, in order to maintain compatibility for
  at least one release cycle and give users time to adapt.
Please revert the commit.
