You can't change the ABI, let alone the ABI, within 2.2.x.  That would
break the contract with third-party developers.  To introduce a new
API, you'd have to use a wrapper.

You can propose changes in trunk, which will then feed into 2.4.
Your biggest hurdle there is to get developer attention and review.

Take a look at how an API changes.  Contrast
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=730296
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=732583
and see how trunk changes ABI (but preserves API) while 2.2.x
preserves the ABI too.
