	Isn't is actually still a problem with _any_ library that undergoes
a major version bump, if some other library has linked against it?
Say I write a library that uses openpty(), then I write a program that
uses it and also uses pidlock() (to pick two random functions from
libutil).  If the libutil major number has jumped, there's still the potential
for breakage, right?
