As per the mechanism used to amend the current API, I don't have a real

Yes, sorry about that.

Right now, I think I just need for someone authoritative enough to
express his preference. You certainly qualify as such, but, if possible,
I'd like to see what the other Ian thinks too, as he's been quite deeply
involved in reviewing this interface.
I think the major argument in favour of the LIBXL_API_VERSION based
approach is that this is how we have dealt with all the previous such
changes. Having a mixture of this and fooN interfaces seems to me to be
worse that either option by itself.

Just to be clear -- if we bump the API number, then we have to do some #ifdef-ery to allow programs compiled against the old API to compile, right?
