I strongly disagree.
We defined a stable public ABI with 1.2.5.
Any symbol not part of that ABI should be renamed if it is changed and probably should be renamed anyway.
See my feedback from Samba; they would prefer that if things are removed from krb5.h they be renamed.
(Note all these symbols are presumably under KRB5_PRIVATE)
