I think we have a big mess now. This option must be ON at least until
the release of the next version. The way it is now the current release
version cannot read any project modified by trunk.
And what happens when the next release appears? We will have the same
situation. This way the new format can never be introduced without
breaking the current release version unless the information is written
in some kind of duplicate way: The old version always reads the old
nodes if new nodes are not available, or the new nodes otherwise, the
new version writes both old and new nodes when the compatibility option
is ON. Later, a few versions in the future, when all old nodes have been
replaced by new nodes we can switch the default of compatibility option
