in that, you're correct. One would expect that developers do assume
that, but it needs to be documented. Why not add that bit to
versioning.html? It's quite a reasonable addition.

For example, Subversion, which uses the exact same versioning rules as
APR, regularly ships rlease candidates marked "-rc" and no-one worries
about breaking the ABI to fix a bug between an RC and a release.
