The alternative would have been never to include pow~ and abs~ inside of
Pd main, but give them different names. I prefer to have them available
in Pd main under their "natural" names now.

There will always be backwards incompatible changes in any programming
language or framework. Pd only had a very small number of these so far
- I can only remember [atan2] - but it must be allowed to create them
while moving along.
