Once we hit 1.0, you can't change any existing API prototypes until 2.0.

So, say, if we change our parameters to svn_client_blame, we have to have
the old version as svn_client_blame and the new entry point as
svn_client_blame2 (or something like that to make the names different).

Just want to make sure we're all on the same page here... -- justin
