The reason for the shared libraries is so that a distro can ship support
for older formats like LVM1 or pool but people who know they don't need
it don't have to have it loaded it all the time.

There's no problem to fix here IMHO, but if there was, we'd simply
attach the full version (2.02.72) to the soname of those libraries to
enforce the requirement to recompile.
