Do you expect to make a major change to the API more than once per year?

Would you like major changes to the server API to release
contemporaneously with other components?

Do you want subtle, minor changes to the API made over a year ago to
be the cause of difficult to diagnose problems?

Do you want  both you and customers to have a context in which only
one year of development need be considered?

How bad is it if all minor bug-fixes and minor API changes are given a
new major version once per year?
