[botan-devel] semantic versioning?

I have been using botan 1.8.10 on Linux with success, mostly for key 
exchange using RSA and use of that key in AES.

I would like to explore ECC, and see it is included in 1.10.6.  I 
switched my build process to use 1.10.6 but alas my existing code now 
breaks, since the APIs for rsa key usage now go through 
PK_Encrypter/PK_Decrypter.

Is it feasible for the Botan version numbers to use semantic versioning, 
as described at http://semver.org.

Thanks

Stuart
