i don’t think so (or at least not much less), and i meant sth. different:
“textdistance=medium” does not mean “greater flexibility”, it does mean “no
change in flexibility, just in distance”. using medium as standard value
would be ok, though, because you get the flexible (=mostly better) behavior
as standard, and the rigid as option.

can’t we just screw backward compatibility at all costs here? i mean:
“medium” won’t make it worse in most cases, just better! (the maximum space
is 1em+1sp, so we probably will never get different hyphenation, but almost
always less overfull \hboxes)
also, \setbreakpoints[compound] should be standard in my opinion.
thanks for the answer,
