As a user of these functions, if a gnulib change would produce a bug
in my code unless I change it, that's likely to cause a problem.  That
is, I don't review every single diff to gnulib for possible imact on
my software.

However, rather than hold back change, I'd just prefer it if my
program just started to fail to compile.  That is, I'd prefer that
backwards-incompatible changes cause compilation failures where
possible (rather than silently wrong behaviour).
