Does anyone uses "10" or "16" to refer to their ABI ? Hum... So those
numbers have to be managed somewhere...

If developers and users are ok with X.Y.Z then the CURRENT, REVISION
and AGE is a different scheme to learn and to implement in the build
system: that need to be managed in parallel. That's to say that if dev
makes some changes in ABI and bumps the version up (say X.Y.Z+1),
someone has to think about the weird libtool thing and update the
libtool's versioning, making substractions and the like...

I am failing to understand the problem. I use libtool to manage the versioning and the only way I would know what the final library name became (for a particular OS) is to do a build and look.
