I don't see any major problem that would be so bad as to require a break in 
binary compatibility. This might happen sometimes. Say in 5 years. If the 
project is still going anyway (not something I take for granted).

No. Versions are not for breaking compatibility and screwing up downstream 
developers. Versions are for new features (new API calls) and bug fixes.
