Right now, Boost provides not guarantees whatsoever about API
and ABI compatibility between any two versions. This might be
OK for major releases, but the question is if we really want
1.35.1 to be incompatible to 1.35.0 in any way? If 1.35.1 is a
bugfix release, then I would hope that:
1. Applications using 1.35.0 need not be changed at all.
2. If application link to 1.35.0 as dynamic library, then
switching them to use 1.35.1 should not break anything.
Does this make sense, and if so, can we officially document
such a policy?
