I don't need to take care of that :) If you introduce new feature
and kill some, partially broken feature, you are responsible
for the legacy support.

I support this alternative ;-) Nice solution with less effort.

Chalk is not dead corpse unless you fix it after API change ;)
For me it's some guard of simple brush that always works.

I would. Please, leave my chalk there. I would not cry
if more people would complain.

Deform does, I don't know about filter.

Please, would you do that?

I think it would be nice rule:
I introduced API change => I have to fix all the dependant code.
