But I fear that we are talking about simple binary ABI-stability of the

we think they are.

There were some examples posted earlier, eg:

I think the issue is that you're using a different definition of stable to what Sun is. Sun mean "backwards compatible", whereas you mean "has the same ABI" which is not the same. It's possible to not break the binary interface but still stop apps from working when they're upgraded, and GTK+ has done this in the past with full knowledge.
