Ah I see the confusion, you are talking about "forwards compatibility" (not
backwards, that would be the case I described). That has always been a goal of
the LSB, that's not new with 3.0. I think previous versions of the LSB have
met that goal too, unless I'm mistaken (Mats can you confirm?).
Oh yeah, I forgot that HP reverses backward and forward compatibility
from what I'm used to.. Note that Wikipedia agrees with my definition,
so it must be true!
