Really ? Which people and what did they need to change ?

Well, two things come to mind:

1) All sort of hardware and network related stuff, e.g. the introduction of Rendezvous.

2) Introduction of weak linking and a compile variable named MAC_OS_X_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET.

Both make it difficult for programs compiled on OS X 10.2 to run on 10.1 and obviously caused some confusion among developers.

But neither of them was a change to existing API.
