[R-SIG-Finance] Interactive Brokers Compatibility

In general the releases of IBrokers are always in step with the most
recent production version of the API.  That is, not the beta, though
some features may be supported from the beta from time to time.

Not always released in lock step though.

Of course, being OSS software you can general patch any differences
that may arise.  They official API moves at a glacial pace these days,
so a real problem is rare.  Often it is only improvements that come
from the new releases.

If you do have patches, just send them to me and I'll see what I can
do about including in an upcoming release.
