Many of my patches are not usable at all without GOP GUIs visible. And I
cannot fix it myself as either it breaks pd-vanilla|pd-extended or
pd-l2ork or it looks dead ugly. So yes, it breaks compatibility in a
serious way. And I also do not see the temporary aspect of it. I as a
patch developer can't provide a solution to this.
This is _the_ reason I don't even try to bother to make my patches work
in pd-l2ork. And I even need to tell people that they shouldn't use
pd-l2ork when they want to use my patches.

Actually, one can decide to use or not to use new features. Obviously,
added features do not work in flavors that do not implement that
feature. From a user point of view, this can be dealt with in an clean
way. If you want your patch to work on other flavors, don't use stuff
like preset_node. I don't see a problem at all with that.
