 > Why not leave the sameq option in and translate it to -qscale 0 for
 compatability purposes?

 Because this was never meant to be a "same quality" option.

 > This change I'm sure will break a lot of existing software out there (I
 know one I'm using for sure will break).

 Updating your scripts to make them use -qscale 0 will work with newer and
 older versions, and it will likely actually also "fix" them.
