Bugwards compatible

Bugwards compatible is a property of a system, product, process or technology that assures that older bugs are retained and not fixed since the quirk of the bug is used to gain features originally not intended.
Fixing such a bug would break the systems, products, processes or technologies depending on or using it. This would cause substantial cost for the consumers when compensating for the loss of features.
