Not necessarily: if we *allow* API breaks every year *but* are
restrained in our use of them - so that, in fact, over a given ten year
period, we only make as many API breaks; we just spread them out over
time more evenly - then we'd be no less stable; and it'd be easier for
client code maintainers to keep up with our major version updates,
because they'd be smaller.

Of course, whether we actually *would* exercise that restraint is an
open question; I have my doubts.

That would be Vitaly's proposal to have major releases yearly.
