[Bioperl-l] Restriction Enzymes

So, back in 2007 I wrote a script using

use Bio::Tools::RestrictionEnzyme;

and generated some useful restriction maps for a client.

This year he comes back to me with some very new enzymes
that RestrictionEnzyme did not recognize. I erroneously thought that I
needed an update of BioPerl, which I requested of SysAdmin.
They did this across the board, there is no going back.
(I did learn about the NEB file that needed to be installed)

Now it appears that I must re-write my scripts because RestrictionEnzyme is
not known to the latest version of bioperl.  Is this true?
How hard would it be to keep things backward compatible.
Have I missed something here?
