 Replying to [comment:3 sami.keijonen]:
 > Why not leave the old text widget and have TinyMCE widget as a new
 widget? That would not break anything.

 I agree this is the right thing to do. Updates that break existing widgets
 are not cool. If the ability to put code in a widget is to disappear,
 there should at least be a "deprecated" period to give people time to find
 a new solution for widgets with code in them, and implement it.
