Not sure how much of that is a jest, bug I don't think that's a good idea.  It
violates commonly held expectations about what constitutes a "minor release".

Of course, I'm not sure to what extent modified interfaces will surprise
people.  At least that's compile-time... but then it will make it harder for
multiple apps with Lucene depenencies to coexist.

Nope.  Why would we do that?  The only reason you're doing it in Lucene is
to preserve back compat, and Lucy doesn't have that constraint.
