Well, let’s just not do that right now.

The upgrade to 1.19 was on very short notice already,
and, IIRC, Jonathan wanted to make something that
installs more nicely after the release anyway.

And, for what’s worth, I’m obviously against any
non-backwards-compatible changes in that manner…

The SpecialInterwiki.php one is the correct one to use.
(for example) works just fine (provided you’re Forge Admin ☺),
and that’s what this extension is supposed to provide.
