Very nice. There is an effective userspace ABI change, but if people
are using the ABI wrong, then it's kind of their own fault!
I'll assume Wolfram will pick these up if / when he is happy with the
new function.

Hmm. ABI change of a sort. Should be fine if userspace is doing things right, but
never a whole lot of certainty about that. Lets see if anyone screams...
