I think the big difference is that since 2008 or 2009 we automatically
load the supp-pdf.mkii code, which didn't happen before.

People did the conversion by hand.

SO that might be the reason it didn't show up till now.

At least in TL2007 there was no problem with that! And in this respect
I am concerned about backward compatibility.

A document that is perfeectly fine in TL2007 suddenly does not compile
at all, and not due to some bad usage of internal things of a macro
package, but we suddenly load supp-pdf.mkii automatically.

I consider this a reason to change that.

Best wishes
