I am both the upstream and the packager for this project, and I am
willing to make changes (well, within reason) to make it fit nicely
into Fedora. Do you have an example of a fedora package that uses this
approach so I can study it, or is there a reference with a bit more
detail of exactly how to create these versioned symbols and the rules
to be followed when deciding which symbols need to be versioned?
