what you mean is that you (collectively) decided to change the design
(another person could in turn make autoconf 3.x incompatible with 2.5x w/o
much trouble by discarding all symbols that are not listed in the info

"internals" should be used in its correct sense: describing things that
a user cannot see, rather than your intentional misuse of it to describe
details of implementation.
