These changes essentially don't change the user facing API at all:

- They only change the C code any other language bindings are not
affected at all.

- If you carry on using the old C library (libqpid-proton) then you
should have the same user facing API. This is not 100% true because
some very low level APIs have been removed, but it is vanishingly
unlikely anyone is using those.

- There is now a new "core" API that contains only the protocol
processing part of protn without any IO. This is intended to be used to
support language bindings and to form the basis for other APIs.
