Freedom software has no need for a stable ABI, however. With freedom software, one continuously re-compiles it and re-releases it with every new version of any code it links with anyway.


Which is a fucking stupid way of managing dependencies. If you think this is a good idea you are quite frankly a moron.

Every tiny change in a software project can cause a bug, and constantly changing little things is a good way to cause breakage. This is software engineering basics and it obvious you don't understand it.
