We already know the limitations pointed out by Maxim and thank Maxim
for making it clear several times. Definitely it's difficult to solve
them, especially the ABI problem. The approach we'll take is keeping
the ABI of the stable versions as conservative as we can, i.e. we'll
not change the ABI of a stable branch. And the ABI changes will just
happen in a development branch.

In such a way it may reduce the value of dynamically loaded modules,
but it's better than nothing.
