I'm wondering about three things:

 + "This means that you may break API/ABI in the next schedule only if
    you create a new version of the API which is parallel-installable
    with the older version."
   Is it possible to do this?

 + Forgetting about ABI, is it possible to keep the API (with some
   #define, maybe)?

 + If someone complains about this breaking an app, what will you do?

Also, I'm still wondering if what the gnome-vfs maintainers did is okay
with our API/ABI compatibility rules. It did break stuff (bindings :-)),
