It gets my vote too. We should do things backwards compatible as far as
possible anyway, and if we break the ABI we bump the soname. (but this should
be rare)

Rather than using *APINO, we should document when certain minor things change
or are fixed so that applications can use our (new) version #defines to check
for specific versions that work or not work etc.
