It will work. But even better would be getting gluster to the point that 
it has a stable back-compat API guarantee (no future API removals or 
signature changes on existing functions - all new functionality is added 
via new API).  The more clients a library gains, the more pain you cause 
yourself and all your clients when you choose not to maintain a 
backwards-compatible stable API.
