If glusterfs-5 releases in October, that may line up with 3.1 or 3.2.
Ok, I'll keep these kind of patches in my tree as work-in-progress and
when the glusterfs-5 gets tagged for alpha/beta send it again.
Even if not optimal, would you accept this as a way going forward?
It will work. But even better would be getting gluster to the point that
it has a stable back-compat API guarantee (no future API removals or
signature changes on existing functions - all new functionality is added
via new API). The more clients a library gains, the more pain you cause
yourself and all your clients when you choose not to maintain a
backwards-compatible stable API.
