I was trying to understand all the different stability levels you
suggested on http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/ForwardCompatibility, and
have one question:

Do we really have to differentiate between between a "Private" and a
"Private Unstable" interface?

If so, can you also explain to me why you are saying that "Private"
interfaces allow incompatible change at any time, while "Private
Unstable" only allows such changes at minor release? To me the term
"Private Unstable" certainly sounds less stable than "Private"...
