Briefly, revving a function includes re-declaring it, updating the old
declaration to be a diff against the new one, marking it as deprecated
(using doxygen and C preprocessor designators), and re-implementing the
old function as a deprecated.c wrapper around the new one.
For a struct, you need to re-declare the struct and revv functions that
use it. Also, don't forget to add a constructor function
(svn_foo_t_create(), but s/_t_/_/) (and possibly a duplicator function),
and forbid people from defining variables of the struct type directly.
I'm not sure HACKING contains this. On the other hand, the public
header files contain plenty of examples of everything I just said...
