I'm not sure how adding a new macro to a public header and adding a new 
interface guarantee if that macro is used can be considered as anything 
other than "introducing a new API".

If the procattr API is so ill-defined that it can't be implemented 
portably and it requires interface extensions to fix that, so be it (no 
argument here), but the versioning rules require that such changes have 
to wait for 1.3.0.
