I'm strongly against adding new API right before the release - it
doesn't give anyone else a chance to review, try or suggest changes, and
once it's in a release, we're committed to the API.

I would prefer that we add several copies of the library to bad as
needed, and migrate it to a common -base location after releases, so
that there's all the time until the next releases roll around to fix
things if need be.
