Having libXXX.so.0.0.0 as soversion probably means that the somajor and 
soversion are not set by the upstream developers (GNU/autotools defaults the 
soversion to 0.0.0). It probably means that next release of the library will 
have the same set of somajor/soversion, whatever is the binary compatibility 
of that release with the previous one.
