No, no nuking at all. Just bit of skipping.

Yep, something like that. In other words, if we have say 1.8 released
and we are working towards 1.10, then anything in 1.9 is completely
API/ABI unstable and relying on it being present in 1.10 is a gamble. Of
course, the relationship between 1.8 and 1.10 would still obey the same
rules as we now have for say 1.3 to 1.4.
