Also, maybe you could go through your new API and check that you can
extend it without breaking old applications in as many places as
Things like making sure that users will use an allocation function
for structures for example, that means that you an always add additional
members at the end.
At least whenever it isn't much effort to do.
We should really avoid keeping APIs in this "experimental" state,
it's ok for a short while, but after a certain time it starts saying
"we can't be bothered to make sure our stuff actually works properly".
