Well, changing the interface from accepting a const QString& to a const QCString& is not 100% BC.  Since the classes are related, and offer some matching constructors (including const char*), the change is partially BC.

As for the policy on the plugin version, I would imagine any non-BC changes in lib/interfaces would require an increase in the plugin version, correct?
