Sure, but we could provide patches.  In general it's probably a pretty
good exercise anyway to find out who the consumers of our APIs are so
that we can find out how good they are, where they could use
improvement, etc.

We could do this, yeah.  We could bump the API versions of the C#
assemblies and the so number of the libbeagle shared libraries.  This
is probably a good idea.  And not to sound like a broken record, but
this stuff should probably go on a branch (or create a 0.3.x branch
and continue on trunk) so that we don't find ourselves in another rut.
