recently, elad made a change to libutil which breaks abi compatibility
without bumping shlib major number.

while there are no affected releases, the interface has been there for
5 months.  i don't see any good reason to break it here.
i believe that the change should be reverted or major should be bumped.

more generally, what's our policy about abi compatibility on -current?
