Just a minor point: I keep saying 3.3, but I kind of mean "3.2 through 
3.3".  I believe the binary ABI shipped with 3.2.  However, in practice 
I suspect there are few installations that

  * are still on 3.2, and
  * will ever use binary-ABI-clean third-party modules compiled against
    3.4+ that contain signatures.
