Now, a simple new rule could be: Whenever you touch an existing automate command, also mark it as changed ("C") on this wiki page for the next upcoming interface version (which would then either be 7.1 or 8.0). The release coordinator then looks at the page and if he only encounters "A"'s in a col, he'd do a minor increment, however if he encounters at least one "C" in the column, he'd do a major increment.

Already changing my own proposals: Introducing a third "B" type, changing the meaning of "C" to "backwards-incompatible change" and setting "B" to "backwards-compatible change".

Between 3.0 and 3.1 stdio was changed to accept options. The syntax for stdio was extended without changing the backwards compatibility.

So, if the release coordinator encounters either only "A"'s or "B"'s, he'd do a minor increment, otherwise he'd do a major increment.
