I added the backwards-incompatible line.  I believe the decision to
use a backwards-incompatible syntax was a conscious one: either because
the issue had been discussed on-list, or because there had been precedent.

I don't have a strong opinion regarding the specific patch.  It's
obviously correct.

However, what should we do with the other instances of the
backwards-incompatible syntax that are currently in Completion/ and

If we want to make $fpath backwards-compatible, we'd need to change all
of them and stop adding new instances of backwards-incompatible
syntaxes... which effectively means we'd stop eating our own dogfood.

Perhaps a 'backwards-compatible $fpath' should live on a separate git
branch, so users of master keep dogfooding.
