You mean, like we changed the meaning of "svn diff -rN filename" in svn
1.1 when we added history-tracking?

The rule you state should be taken with a grain of salt. There's no
excuse for changing an API function's signature so that every program
which uses the function suddenly fails to compile, but there are plenty
of good reasons to change the semantics of a particular call to be
better. Same for a command-line syntax.
