I tend to think that we will need a flexible API policy for
sugar-toolkit. Given the time pressure, resources we are under, and
the amount of unknown in the things we are trying to implement, I
think it's unrealistic to adopt a policy a la gtk, with full backward
compatibility. Perhaps we need to start gradually freezing interfaces,
to mark them as such in the documentation and, as Scott suggested, to
write unit tests to ensure they are not broken.
