Just to digress; for Coin we use the soname (normal
libtool version-info) because Open Inventor is C++, and achieving
ABI-compatibility with it is impossible.  I don't even think either
SGI or TGS Open Inventor is ABI-compatible with itself for many
version-increments at a time.  Of course, your point is still valid
for the situation with Mesa and Lesstif.

Another digression; I'd like to know what you meant with the "mostly non
issue" comment.
