No, I don't think this is appropriate for a major bump.  It's not really
an interface _per se_ that's changing...

We could "fix" the problem by doing something like:

struct foo foo_vec_store[] = {

/* foo_vec is what external things reference */
struct foo *foo_vec = foo_vec_store;

...and then linking _one more time_ :-)  This would cause the size of
the symbol to be forever more sizeof(struct foo_vec *), no matter how
many items add.
