as christoph mentioned i think those are in relatively isolated places
so we would probably try to postpone any work that would
require the api change (which in my mind is very little) to
the latest point in time possible.

that would be ideal.
but since there are some obvious corrections needed, we would like to
make those fixes as soon as possible.
particularly, the example of adding a return value that you mention
above does not break existing code, therefore i consider it relatively
harmless and suitable for a 2.0 release.
