numcomp is a free-standing collection of compatibility modules.  It is
throw-away code to help mitigate the need to simultaneously change
several pieces of software.  It's not required or recommended, but is
there as a tool to ease the transition from the old names to the new if
the transition presents any sticky problems.

Thanks looking it over,
