Compatibility is not the point; maintenance burden is.

If the functionality my widget provides can be implemented in terms of
existing widgets, then (a) perhaps my widget doesn't need to be
committed at all, and (b) if it _is_ to be committed, it should be
reimplemented in terms of existing widgets, if possible.

Similarly, when I asked whether there is anything my widget does
existing widgets don't, the point was that perhaps those widgets could
be improved.  For example, if my widget worked on Tuesdays and the
existing widgets didn't, then teaching select-in-shell-word or
"select-word-style shell" to work on Tuesdays would improve all widgets
implemented in terms of those two widgets, not only b-k-s-word.
