As far as I can see, the GNOME experience with libegg so far is that
unstable API means unstable user-visible experience, because things get
imported unevenly and updated unevenly, and that is if/when they are
imported at all. So, I'm well aware of the distinction you're
describing, but so far the /practical/ distinction between the two
problems is small. Or so it seems to a naive but slightly technically
skilled user. :)
