Eh, no. curl 7.17.0 does *not* break this as you will see below.

The error code CURLE_FTP_USER_PASSWORD_INCORRECT has been moved to the list of
codes that will be removed in the future, and thus it isn't present if you
define CURL_NO_OLDIES when you build.

So if you want backwards-compatible style you *don't* define CURL_NO_OLDIES
and you can use that define fine still. If you define it, you should be
prepared to edit some of the codes to the up-to-date versions.

So why do these guys explicitly switch off compatibility?

Nope. We still support the option as described above.
