Following the discussion we had with Neil during the conference call,
I suggest this plan, starting with the next release (2.0):
	- add version numbers to libraries
	- add version numbers to functions inside .map files
	- create a git tree dedicated to maintenance and API compatibility

It means these version numbers must be incremented when breaking the API.
Though the old code paths will be maintained and tested separately by volunteers.
A mailing list for maintenance purpose could be created if needed.
