Breaking the interface means changing the semantics without introducing new
syntax. For example, if x is int and you decide you need 20 of them
afterwards, you say "x2 is int" and you throw x away. Afterwards you
have to accommodate the code using x, which is now undefined, to the new
semantics. The fact that x is undefined is helpful because you have a
smaller chance of overlooking something.

Doesn't renaming the .value property to for example .files also break
