I agree, breaking users without a very good reason is a no-go. I'm just worried that those old scripts would break anyway when they expect a 2.0 profile and there suddenly isn't one anymore, so we might as well break with an obvious "gmcs not found" instead of harder-to-debug errors.
This obviously needs more discussion/investigation and that's exactly why I posted these proposals :)
