I don't see that. The idea of the symbolic link is explicitly
rejected, which I think implies also the use of a copy.
The way I understand this:
right now there's two libraries: libldap_r (threaded) and libldap (nonthreaded)
proposed state: two libraries: libldap_r (threaded) and libldap (threaded)
So anything which links to libldap will continue to do that, but despite the
name, libldap will really similar to libldap_r.
