Thanks you for the pointer. I take my words back.
Yes, Tcl stubs is about what's needed for the stable ABI. So we have at least one scripting language whose authors are serious about compatibility.
Now we need to convince developers of extensions to use this mechanism, but this is indeed a good start.
Too bad the Tcl itself is not all that popular. And there is also the unfortunate fact that distributions often don't use Tcl stubs but link with one single version of Tcl directly - but yes, in this particular case authors of the language did their part.
