Of course it is, this is exactly the definition. If you do not want to
expose it, put it in the protected section and make class friend. This
is basic C++.

I do not know those implementation details.

This has absolutely nothing to do here. This is a matter of respection
versioning. Apparently work is properly done at library level and
SONAME/SOVERSION have been updated, all I am looking for is the same
at API level (ie. reflect the change of ABI/API, at code level).
This is a very basic question: how does client application level cope
with an API incompatible change (this is a naive question, I could not
find the proper #ifdef)
