Hi Eddy

You're confusing the ABI binary compatibility check with the API review. API 
reviews do indeed review whole new APIs. Just look at the Calendar System API.

But for full new APIs, the BC check tool does not make sense. Especially for 
new modules, this is a much larger discussion than a diff review.
