Right, but they are (or should be) independent core components, not
components of a single core item, as your "engine block" example was.  I
think I clearly delineated that when I said I would not expect to
interchange portions of a single backed with mixed versions.

The FE and BE are not components of the same core item.  They are
independent items which should operate independently of each other with
a published API between them.

No.  I respectfully disagree.

Exactly "published ... API".  That is what should exist between the FE
and BE making them interchangeable with other versions and other
products even.

Sorry, yes they are.

Yeah.  That's part of the point of this whole digression of this thread.

I think I am done here.  I've made my point and you are just being silly
and argumentative with no point.  Have a nice day.
