Agreed, I have less problem however with *adding* to
the API as FOP gets more powerful.  But if we're going
from 3 methods to 40, then, yes, we probably would
need a new "major" release.

Now whether the changes I proposing (and the state of
the app after the rest of the system is more or less
complete) would warrant a 1.0 or a 0.30 is not of
concern to me.  The API-enhanced version would just be
a 2.0 or a 1.0, respectively.
