That seems fine, except maybe one point: the reordering of fields
in the cob_file struct in fileio.h.

It means that ALL programs MUST be recompiled and (relinked
if static) against the newer libcob.

I wonder if we could not add a version identification in such
structures and let the runtime check the availability of new
features before using them.

1) Incompatible the first time
2) More time spent at execution.

Or at least keep a note for the next release pointing to that
incompatible change.

Your opinion ?
