It was probably a big mistake to introduce APIVERSION in the
first place. I'm already regretting I've ever let myself be
talked into doing this...

APIVERSION is only incremented in levels of official VDR releases.
During maintenance patches it may at some point be incremented
to the next official release version, but that's it.
