we are happy for you to build - but beware - we still reserve the right to make
INCOMPATIBLE changes until 1.0.0 release (which will happen when e17 goes out
the door). of course any changes will likely be small and easy to adapt to - as
we have a tonne of code depending on those libs now and changes for us will be
painful too, but when we make changes - we will have a good reason.
