I was thinking about third-party modules for x.org-7.x. I see your point.

Please read my new mail "Fedora target audience, what about the research area? 
(was Re: Leaving?)", in the same thread. I have tried to explain the problem 
from some "institutional" users.

The same problem occurs with the kernel: ABI changes are usually internal to 
the kernel+libc. But there are third-party kernel modules, again.

In the mail I quote above, I try to explain why the ABI of shared library 
should be preserved during the life time of a major release of Fedora, as 
much as possible.
