They have to: even 1.0 working copies have to keep working, so the
branch must provide a fallback for information not being available.

Not much. It may look weird though. We don't introduce and deprecate
functions in our public api between 1.x and 1.(x+1) though, so, I'd
say there is no precedent for doing it. Especially since we need to
have fallback anyway, I see no reason to do the double increment.

Ok. Does that mean we will be doing double increments on function
prototypes too from now? I liked the 'trunk is for developers' regime.
