The inability to put - on <+... ...+> was a bug. So I don't know if
fixing a bug would be considered a sign of an unstable grammar. There was
also one deliberate change in the grammar some rc's ago related to the use
of commas in sequences (parameter lists etc). But otherwise, the changes
in the grammar have been additions, as people eg ask for new kinds of
metavariables.

But Coccinelle is a research prototype under development, not a product.
So I'm not sure it is appropriate to say that we guarantee anything.
