Its not about maintaining compatibility, its about maintaining 
versioning.  Don't confuse the versioning mechanisms with restrictions 
on changes.

Bumping the MMN allows modules to be compiled against trunk, and know 
when an API has changed.  It is perfectly acceptable to break, change, 
or modify an ABI in trunk at any time, but we still should version it, 
so anyone interested will have a way to know this.
