I hadn't realised the specification was so useful for developers; I'll
make sure I read both versions thoroughly.

I'll definitely make sure it will easily be able to handle an upgrade to
0.3, and hopefully be able to support both at compile time. But I don't
think I can afford the luxury of dropping 0.22. Not only is that the
version that might be stuck in Debian stable, I'm also using
ROX-Session, and that still only supports the 0.2 series.
