IIUC this is going to prevent virt-viewer being built against existing
released of spice. I think this is a rather unpleasant API break for
SPICE to force on client programs.

I would really expect there to be several releases where SPICE provided
the new single-header that apps could use, while *also* allowing apps
to continue to include the more specific headers. ie, give apps some
grace time to switch over to the new style. Can you try and re-visit
this in SPICE first.
