Too bad. Also too bad that the patch hasn't been incorporated upstream yet,
which would make it easier to keep track of these changes. But as the
The major number is increased when the ABI is changed in a non
backward compatible way.
The minor number is increased each time a new feature is added (in a
way that doesn't break backward compatibility)

I think I can say this: LOCAL_SCAN_ABI_VERSION_MINOR should have been
incremented some time ago, but since nothing actually has depended on it,
incrementing it with the addition of exim4-dev should work.
(I intend to use some of the newer functions if the ABI version >= 1.1 when
building. This is so the same package can be built for use with older
versions of Exim.)
