A quick glance at the source looks like there's less than ten places in
gncmodule.c that require changing.  But I think that what you're
pointing out makes a good general guideline -- we're working to fix
these cases upstream.  If upstream has a fix but it's in their
development branch (gnucash-cvs, kde4) then we could make a specific
exception to the guideline for that software with the note that the fix
will be in release x.0.  The only question would be how long we would be
willing to wait for that update rather than backporting/fixing the
problem in the current version.
