Can you please elaborate on _how_ this is incompatible in the commit
message?

For example, it's not clear to me if you mean that's functionally
incompatible, or if you're trying to remove return-altering gadgets.

If there's a functional incompatibility, please spell that out a bit
more clearly. Likewise if this is about minimizing the set of places
that can mess with control-flow outside of usual function conventions.

Thanks,
Mark.
