Adding an API call does not break the API. Adding an API can, in the large percentage of cases, be done without breaking ABI (Sure, it might means that the structures are not as beautiful as they should be, but...)

I don't see the issue here.

In general, adding big changes should be done at the beginning of a new cycle, not at the end.
