Well, some of the API uses "variable" types, so even if the interface  
does not change literally, changing the types involved poses a problem.

E.g., meta-data properties are declared as dictionary with string keys  
but arbitrary values ("a{sv}"). In practice, all meta data values are  
strings. They used to use the String ("s") D-Bus type, but now Tomeu  
changed it to byte arrays ("ay"). This is breaking Etoys resume which  
reads the title property and expects a String but gets a ByteArray.
