libvirt-designer, libvirt-designer.so.0 rather than libvirt, libvirt.so.0

I'm not sure the "CURRENT - AGE" part is 100% accurate, looking at the
libtool script (searching for $current), some OSes (freebsd, qnx, ..)
seems to use just $CURRENT (not really important though)

Hmm I think I remember Debian packagers complaining when we broke ABI by
only changing symbol versioning and not changing soname (as I don't think
symbol versions show up in .deb requires), will we be incrementing this
every time we break ABI?

Looks good otherwise.
