'major upgrade' probably means bump of following value:
$PPI::XS_COMPATIBLE = '0.845'
If it bump to greater than $PPI::XS::VERSION, p5-PPI-XS must be updated.
On the other hand,
$PPI::XS::PM_COMPATIBLE = '0.844'
If it bump to greater than $PPI::VERSION, p5-PPI must be updated.
Those requirement should be noted in p5-PPI-XS/Makefile and p5-PPI/Makefile.
