It extends the ABI, therefore isn't suited to 1.5.x.  We can't add
a new function entry point which would cause a program linked to 1.5.2
to fail to load under 1.5.0.  The ABI's remain identical except for
actual damage/bug mitigation.

It doesn't break the ABI and appears to be forward-compatible, so it
looks suitable for trunk and also for 1.6.x.
