We've been very clear in the past that we might break the API before  
1.0 (which
Damien narrowed down to 0.9 now, which is okay). I'm not categorically  
that there's client code out there, but we document the changes well  
and the
changes required should be minimal and easy to do.

At this stage, client code should not be a concern here.
