Yes, what other kind of compatibility is there?

Or, another way to look at it is that relying on specific behavior for
strangely formatted input.  Why are there spaces between the binary
digits anyway?  Why not fix that instead?

I don't plan to fix this myself, but will apply a patch if someone
else provides it.  It must work for character matrices as well as
single charachter strings.  It would be good to include a test for the
new behavior.
