API-stable, I mean. I'm sure that not every version is API stable.

  Backward compatible, both at the API and ABI level.

  The developpers are on the xml gnome org list and changes are discussed
before releases. Plus I'm a dictator...

  Additions are backward compatible. The think I will not garantee
