The technical criteria leading to this are:

* Plugins to an app (in this case, mod_{python,wsg} to apache)
* Plugins link to a library that is versioned at the library level but not
  versioned/namespaced at the symbol level.  (In this case, libpython24.so
  and libpython26.so which provide an overlapping set of function names).

Whether to create a general criteria from this or limit it to the specific
case of apache with
mod_python/python26-mod_python/mod_wsgi/python26-mod_wsgi I leave to you :-)
