I skimmed through the series and in general the idea is good, but I'm
not sure why each component user needs to be converted/"modern" before
it can make use of the benefits of this series. Why not just have
wrapper functions around the component ops that the new aggregate bus
driver can just call? That'll give all the existing component users
the new ability to use the new ops without having to have two
versions. That'll also allow us to do other improvements (I have some
in mind) that'll apply to all the component users instead of only the
converted ones.
