#1 Extending stable ABI / API to two years

    * Will set a deadline for the document review in next meeting.

    * Atomic built-ins used because of old compilers.
    * If we can drop old compiler support, we can switch to atomic APIs.

    * Honnappa and Aaron will figure out the details on what is exactly required
    * Later we can crate an policy around it, right now it is for
      Thomas/Aaron/Honnappa to manage.
