Andreas,

To wrap around this problem, Exiv2 must ue everywhere d private internal classes to store private methods and members, to preverve binary compatibility.

Look how it's implemented in libkexiv2 :

Gilles,

I agree, that's also necessary. Bug #510 is for this, I've implemented a few cases so far, see eg, r1155

In this case however, the issue was with an enum in the public interface. Some redesign is needed.

With #719 and #721 I believe this is taken care of.
