I've stumbled upon the ABI compliance checker [1], a small tool that 
checks API/ABI issues across two versions of the same library. It seems 
to generate sensible reports, so perhaps we should think of using it 
together with the header reviews. Here's an example of running it on 
QtWidgets 5.1.1 vs 5.2.0:


Of course, not everything it notices is a real problem (changes in 
private APIs are totally fine, etc.).
