Safe to add a field to svn_error_t?

The addition of "tracing" to svn_error_t in 1.7 currently uses a special message
string "traced call". Instead of doing this, can we safely add an svn_boolean_t
to svn_error_t the indicates if it is a traced error?

While svn_error_t is public, I'm hoping most people are creating them with
svn_error_create*(), so if that's the case, then code written and compiled
against svn <= 1.6 would work fine when linked against a 1.7 library.

Thoughts?
