I'm sorry, but can you please explain in which way this should help
answering the following question: Brian, the package maintainer, is
about to release another version of his package; he would like to
know if, since the last release, the semantic, API, and ABI changes
to his library necessitate a bump in the version number triple to be
used for the upcoming release?

This isn't a question which can be answered completely mechanically,
at least I don't know of such a possibility.
