This is automatically handled by DllImport. Also note that once the
API is fixed, we'll just add to it: the existence of an API entry point
is trivial to check for.
We could add a major version number to be able to do some extra sanity
check, but it will basically not change very often if at all: one of the
things we're trying to address with this library is breakages in the
debugger as a consequence of runtime internal changes and we don't want
to add one more potential unstable API to make things worse.
