Wow.  This would be a heavy change. [...]
Can't we use some other method to make it obvious to the distributor
that libfoo has gone from 22.0.0 to 22.1.0?

Well the problem is really independent of any of the per-distro package

I don't agree that this is a problem with libtool, it is a packaging issue.

If libfoo went from 22.0.0 (provided by foo-2.0.0) to 22.1.0 (provided by foo-2.0.2) then new binary packages created that use the new libfoo need to have a versioned dependency >= foo-2.0.2, end of story.
