I agree 100%. I don't think we should have exceptions.

As a user, I'd be mad if my Perl code bound against 1.0.5 doesn't work in
1.0.6 because we have separate rules for the bindings that allow breakage.

I think our users should expect that applications written against *any*
bindings (C, Perl, Python, Java) distributed in the 'official' 1.0 should work
for all of 1.0. This is where I think we start to define when/how we bump SVN
versions as a whole. I'd really like to see a discussion on what changes are
going to merit bumps. What does a schema change mean? Protocol change? Core
API change? I'd like to have those defined and public soon-ish. -- justin
