That's unfortunate. It means that, aside from distributing the widget 
source code, compiled widgets are bound to a specific LC version with no 
guarantee that they will work with any other past or future version. 
Does 'major version' here mean 9.x or 9.0.x? Can I assume that the 
binary format will stay the same across all LC9.x releases?

I have to say I'm surprised that we're still at this state of things so 
far after the fanfare introduction of extensions.
