That depends on the order in which you make the two patches. If you make the
enhancements first, then there won't be any such change within libsvn_wc.

It doesn't matter if they change during development of a new minor version
(Subversion v1.4). It only matters if the API is introduced in one version and
(e.g. 1.4) and then has to be changed in a later version (>= 1.5).
