Yes, several board members specifically said that even additive-only
changes must be curtailed at this point, unless truly critical, and
that bindings are not critical enough.
I'm hoping we can make all the neede additions soon after 2.0, which
works better with the timing of most language bindings anyway.
(I imagine part of the reason is that if you add an API fairly late in
the game, you may need to change it afterwards.)
