How about you look at git and see what happened last time?
We added some dri2 proto requests, and people wanted to build with old
versions w/o the new requests. So they added some ifdefs but didn't
check all the combos (now not just old server/new server, but
multiplied by two) and things were broken for awhile, and it was easy
to get breakage without even noticing (I found several bugs for people
related to invalidation that were solely due to bad builds).
