Just see how others does this. Linux Kernel is one example, Django is
another. This two projects from very different corners are able to
provide stable API/ABI for some longer time period. I really appreciate
your (GNOME devels) hard work but sometimes it is better to stop and
think for a moment about where we're going, than writing as much code as
one can handle and the remove it in next release.
