Hi Magne,

Sorry for the delay.

Hmm, I'm inclined to agree with you.  But from skimming the text around,
I think it does not even get clear whether `changing' an interface means
a compatible or an incompatible change.  Or whether what I would call an
incompatible change is called an `interface removal' in the manual

I must admit that I've tried to avoid this part of the documentation so
far, mostly.
