absolutely piddling easy.  if you wanted a new version of an interface,
you create a new number for it (12 bytes plus an interface version?) and
then create your new functions.

or you could add a totally new function number.  or increase the version
number of an existing interface.

each new function will take about half an hour to an hours' work to code
