Thanks for the split, which was rather appropriate. Positive_review on my side.

See followup #16625. Sorry I did not spot this earlier; it's too bad the change was released in 6.3, since now we are reverting a backward incompatible change, making it compabible back to <=6.2 but not 6.3 ...

I'm seeing it right that only the SymmetricGroup?.Algebra part of this ticket will be reverted?

Replying to darij:
Oops, I am updown dislexic apparently :)

Definitely.
Last 10 new commits:
Implemented _coerce_map_from_ for SGA.
More fixes and doctests.
Fixed the issue...finally... Also some other minor cleanup.
Added comment about register_embedding.
Changed to use _coerce_map_from_ and made it more robust/general.
documentation fixes to canonical_embedding of symmetric group algebra (yes, these maps aren't always embeddings, and the inequality was backwards)
oops, another doc fix
Merge commit 'ff4e546a838e9e9a4be86b3a89d8596658beb3f4' into public/coercions/fix_sga_coercions16678
Additional fixes noted on sagedevel thread.
Fixed stupid mistake.
