Not that this is my turf, but as I (and most of the list) was not at the
dinner, any chance you can fill me in on what the proposed value for
this change is?

I'm assuming this is meant to be some barrier to updating APIs?

I note that in Samba4, we seem to be moving down the line that
externally visible (for some definition of that) APIs are mostly
hand-maintained, while internal APIs are prototyped.
