I think we should do that in 1.4.0betaN+1 - there's no reason to skip
to 1.4.1.  It just means that the shared library will be,
rather than  The number '0' (current) or '1' (proposed)
is hardwired in

That looks like a major release, but since 1.4.0 is still in beta the
preceding major - - was never public.

Notice that in 1.4.x 'x' is the *minor* release.  So we have:

libpng 1.2.9 -->
libpng 1.2.10 -->
libpng 1.4.0 --> (currently)
libpng 1.4.0 --> (proposed)

The 'compatibility' named library ( shouldn't be generated
by 1.4 (at least, I think that is what we agreed - there is absolutely
no reason to generate it!)
