	True, true - but pragmatically if you have an old extension, that you
want to work on lots of older's / LibreOffices you'll
want to build with an old SDK, since the new ones automagically require
a newer LibreOffice.

	So - IMHO we shouldn't be overly concerned about this level of source /
API breakage as long as the ABI stays backwards compatible.
