  Well, since they correctly changed the interface version, I think this is
okay to track that change. I just don't want to try to track every possible
interface change they would not label as such. That change has been commited
on their side for a while now, so I guess it's there for good too, plus
as Dan pointed out the change could be rather minimal, so let's do it.
