I see Jordan's opinion here and I also faced this situation before.
I proposed a hacking patch [1] to notify wrong usage of Tempest
methods to projects and I saw some users of these methods didn't know
the definition of stable interfaces of Tempest.
We always face this issue on developments which change *internal*
methods of Tempest.

Yeah, this approach is very nice to land patches softly.
Users can find solutions if facing this issue on the own gate.
