Perhaps the first step is to document the API as it currently

you reconfigure vpopmail, you need to rebuild those things that link

current functionality (much). Then we can in parallel start
the truly stable API and other changes that will become 6.0, and
do we can increment libvpopmail.so to indicate the ABI difference.
I would love to see this happen, but it is going to take a
considerable amount of work. I'm willing to provide lots of input on
the API, but really don't have time to contribute actual code.
I can help out with documenting some of the ways that QmailAdmin
interfaces with vpopmail. Getting a new version of QmailAdmin to
compile to a shared vpopmail lib with a single vpopmail.h to describe
the API would be great. As it is now, QmailAdmin actually uses
vpopmail's config.h file at build time. That will definitely have to
If we use two different names, could we retain backward compatibility
by building a libvpopmail the way we do now (statically linked, apps
may use vpopmail's config.h, etc.) in addition to the new-style,
shared library with a well-defined API?
