Backward compatibility is a hard habit to get into, and easy to put
off. If you're not making any guarantees now, when are you going to
start making them? How much breakage can users expect? Without wanting
to look entirely like a troll, should TripleO be dropped as an
official until it can start making such guarantees? I think every
other official OpenStack project has a stable API policy of some kind,
even if they don't entirely match...
