Hi Jason, and thanks for the explanation. But I think I understand the
technical side of this pretty well. My question was meant to be more
from a pragmatic viewpoint.

I mean, if there turns out to exist no concrete examples of these
binary-only third party libraries this discussion is merely
hypothetical, and we could just go ahead and do the bump. It wouldn't
affect anyone.

So I assume that there has to exist a lot of examples, libraries that
people depend on? I'm just curious as to what they are. The only
example I have seen mentioned sofar is QT, but as I stated in another
mail I didn't find that to be a very convincing example, at least to
me... ;-)

Kind regards,
