No, it's far too late to change it!  But presumably it's "creeping
developerese": programmers forget that what API actually means is
"design specs for source code" and think of it as meaning just "the
part of the software I interact with".  Even "ABI" would be closer -
at least that's a runtime thing!

Er, does that mean I need to learn to use debcheckout, or is this the
version I get when I apt-get source?
