Some macros access fields in the struct, notably _bkgd, so
they can't move until the major version is increased.

If you can think of a better way of dealing with this, then by
all means let us know, but don't just say that it is unnecessary
because that only shows that you haven't thought about it.

(Note that I don't have any strong feeling either way wrt
