I agree that it is opaque.

Now my question we won't ensure backward compatibility between
libsvn_ra_dav of 1.4.2 with libsvn_ra of '1.5.x'.
Am I correct?

To make it even generic.
Backward compatiblity is ensured only with libraries of the name
'libsvn_wordwithnounderscore' like 'libsvn_client, libsvn_diff,
libsvn_ra, libsvn_subr, libsvn_delta, libsvn_fs, libsvn_repos, libsvn_wc'?

Am I correct?

With regards
