Another question regarding API tooling: when does the checker consider a
class as being API? We have some classes that changed between the
baseline but they are meant to be used only inside the plugin. Even
flagging them with @noextend and @noinstantiate still gives error on the
MANIFEST that the minor version should be increased because of an API
change. How do I make a class non-API?

OK, I can probably answer this myself now: everything is API except if
you add x-internal:=true to the Export-Package declaration in the
manifest. Is this correct?
