I do not understand why you introduced the LIBIDN_1.17 version tag, the
ABI does not have two different versions of these symbols which require
a version tag to distinguish them.
If you really want to pretend that the symbols never existed before
release 1.17 then you just add them along the others and declare an ABI
change: now packages using libidn built by distributions will either
depend on release >= 1.17 or use .symbols files like Debian does to
determine the exact version of libidn the package being built needs to
depend on.
