When/if enterprising entities implement their own fs backend
or ra modules, they'll want some sort of API/ABI stability, so
that they don't have to constantly roll new releases.

I recognize that there aren't any examples of this yet, but
we went through all the trouble of building the RA and FS
loaders; we have to expect that someday there will be
third-party modules.
