It occurred to me that from this result you can even today create a
hacky way to link to shared libraries with an absolute path.

For each shared lib, create a shim as above that has no SONAME. It can
link itself to the real library. Since it refers to just one, it can
have an RPATH plus basename and still only find the correct library.

Then link your program with the shim instead of the real library, and do
this by specifying the full path.  Your program will then include the
same path to the shim.

It's not ideal, but it should work.
