Great. So, are we in agreement that the above 6 steps sound like a
sensible plan for communicating C++ ABI changes going forward? Is there
anything else you'd like to add?
I think the above is both minimal and sufficient for the time being.
Some of it was already being done, but in more of a piecemeal fashion
and often months after changes went in.
