Eh? The API isn't stable, and it changes between patch levels. Neon has not
seen a 1.0 release, and its API is explicitly subject to change.

Personally, I'm glad for it. I will *happily* update our use of Neon, if
that change to Neon improved it. I would hate to see a case where Neon (or
any other Open Source package) got held back from doing the Right Thing.

don't bother me.

Patches welcome :-)
