My point is that it is TOTALLY unreasonable to require patches to
arbitrary 3rd-party software in order to make their shared libraries
All of that can be avoided by not bumping the major on a select set of
important shared libraries.
It baffles me why people seem to be insisting on looking for a solution
to this problem when the problem can be completely, and almost totally
painlessly, avoided in the first place!
