According to Maxime Henrion:

The external ones are the problem but I agree that there are probably none.

Because that how you play the major number game in shared libraries world.
Anytime you change (i.e. remove a function or change a function's argument
in a way that's incompatible with the prevous one) a librabry's interface,
you MUST (in the RFC-mode sense of the world) change the major.

I agree with Warner that it is a major pain (and why we do this only once
in a given branch) and that it this case, we can simply ignore the issue.
