It was because the change introduced an ambiguity where argument
"bang" could match
both a "bang" message and "symbol bang" message. Since [route] already
handles bang
unambiguously and since the feature was never documented it seemed
safe to remove it.

I could make a branch of code in the select class to support that
feature and couple it with a
certain compatibility level. But that would require the user to a)
know ahead of time which
version number will unlock that branch and b) manually send a message
to Pd to turn
on that particular compatibility level.

I started an issue related to the problems with the compatibility method:
