Wrong.  It provides a fairly portable abstraction of different
versioning schemes implemented in different operating systems/libc's.
By definition, libtool cannot do better than what the native system
provides.  In cases where the native system provides even less than what
the libtool versioning is able to express, such as w32, it has to resort
to library renaming to get even a chance of a kind of "versioning".
