Oh my goodness, I hope this is not a path that is taken.
The idea is that the new tool needs to be able to process an older
version of xml2rfc file, because the new version of xml2rfc is simply a
superset of the old. That's real backward compatibility: the old stuff
still works directly in the new environment, rather than requiring the
new stuff to 'revert' to the old environment.
