This should be okay since you can still get/set the materials from the 
objects mesh.
its only the "getFromObject" - also thats effected, its not likely to 
break any scripts, since mesh is new. and all the scripts I have seen so 
far dont even use colbits not even NMesh.
- Try searching blenders scripts for colbits :)

Its not impossible that this change breaks existing scripts, but its 
"breaking"- would just be that is uses the object materials where set. 
which is more often then not, what the user wants to do anyway.
