Yuo keep missing my point.  I think some packagers have been worrying
about this all along and is one of the reason why soname in
packagename hasnt been the norm for Red Hat ever.   Whether or not you
think its a corner case.. while a fascinating bit of information for
me to know... doesn't change whether or not this issue i bring has
been an important factor in the past for packagers who are not using
the soname-in-packagename model. And if it has been an important
factor in the past... i'd like to know what has changed.
