Yes, it is. I wasn't expecting people to actually start using it ;-)

Seriously, there are several defects in the published API which do
warrant a change. The most severe one is that it's really easy to
forget to initialise the start index. And while I'm making that change,
I should fix smaller things like the errno at the same time.

I think the first of these should be using the alloc_cyclic API, like this:
