Libsoup troubles in rawhide (compat-libsoup22 needed)



The new "libsoup" library in rawhide, version 2.3.0, introduces a lot of API incompatibility, comparing with the previous 2.2.x versions. There are even some design changes, hence it seems impossible for package maintainers to do "just a monkey job" of renaming functions etc. In my case of "libtranslate" (which depends on libsoup), it requires a deep upstream intervention (which, surely, was not in upstream's todo list...)

It could be fine to have "libsoup22" or "compat-libsoup-2.2" package in rawhide.
