Sean has tested the ->clone() method change for ABI breaks and
it seems that at least postgis runs w/out problems when build
against 2.2.1 and run against 2.2.2 with that change.
If you want to replicat the test with readHex/writeHex you're
welcome. Frank reported that in his experience there's no ABI
break as far as functions are *appended* to vtable, which is usually
done by listing them last in class definition.
