One of the things that I did once was to streamline an implementation my
receiving a number of things well, like old-style packets and lengths, but
only generating one thing (like five-byte lengths) on the grounds that if
you move to generating a simplified format, you can then start doing usage
surveys on when to phase out the old stuff.
Yes. Last time I checked, gnupg < 2 (which is still the default on most of
my systems) only generates old-style headers, whereas my implementations
tend to only generate new-style. Of course, usually one wants to consume
both, if creating even a fairly-complete implementation, because of gnupg.
