Another way would be to require someone to write a non-trivial program which uses the API to do something useful.
And make that non-trivial program part of the available documentation.
One of the most frustrating things in working with FLOSS is that often (but by no means always) the documentation is awful. It is generally a set of notes written by the author (who entirely understands what it is all about), so someone coming new to the problem has a really hard time getting to see how everything fits together.
A non-trivial program would be great for system calls; something similar needs to be available for other FLOSS components.
