But we did it in two stages: 1. a kernel/userspace ABI that is stable enough where it matters (mostly the syscalls), and 2. process personalities/execution domains (refer to personality(2)). Heck, we can still run libc5+a.out crap from the past millenium.
So we will have to call 3.11 "The Defenestrating War Hamster" or something like that :p
