I am proposing that we hold this fix out of 7.0.1 and instead ship it in
a special 7.0.2 (or maybe 7.1.0 ?) release, so that users that want to
are still able to get all the bug-fixes without the ABI changes.
I think we should go with 7.1.0 instead of 7.0.2, since 7.1.0 looks unusual as opposed to 7.0.2, which looks like business as usual. This will help people to notice that the ABI changed.

+1 - ABI changes should increment the minor version number.


How does this sound to everyone?
Sounds reasonable to me.
