My guess is that if someone had 1.3.x compiled without threads, having
this functionality in any later version of 1.3.x would suddenly spring
up symbols that didn't exist before. Therefore, anyone linking against
that never version would have trouble linking again with the older
version of 1.3.x.

I believe we are allowed to do things like this between 1.3.x and 1.4.x.

Or is this not what you're asking?
