Hi Han-Wen,

With GNOME there is also a difference, as you know: they do not add API
in micro series, only in minor series, and never change the API or ABI
in incompatible ways. While that should be our intent, it's quite a
burden for a language implementation that exposes as much of its guts as
Guile does.

I think we should preserve Guile's ability to change API or ABI
incompatibly (while providing shims: next mail).

Releasing more often would be great, though.
