Your original message is still sitting in my "review, ponder, and comment"
folder.  I think your patch looks good and think it should be applied as
soon as Gary gets a chance, but while we're on the topic of osf style

Does anyone know why both soname versioning *and* internal versioning is
being used for OSes where version_type=osf or version_type=irix (which
used to be specified as version_type=osf but now has its own category)?

It would definitely cause backwards compatibility problems if it were
changed at this point, but I don't understand the reason why both
versioning schemes are being used for shared libraries.  Can anyone
comment on this design decision?
