I think I might have not quite fleshed out option "a" fully. I'm
talking about a&b, not a^b.

There is also "d. allow either", which (I think) is what you believe I
meant by a.

I don't think having both would be confusing. It would allow people to
use the new paths (which seems sane), but also use the old ones which
have been used for years and years. I agree that "allow either" is not
sane from any perspective.

Preferentially I still think we should deprecate the old shell paths
though, unless there are technical limitations.
