I think these are good points. The key isn't to never break things, but 
to structure it well. That is why I'd like to break everything, clean it 
all up and then move forward from something like 3.0 as the API freeze 
for all release up to 4.0. That's really what I'm after. Then I can tell 
the tools to check compatibility at the major number.
