Seems reasonable, only that it is yet again different than how it is
handled with python. I know the situation is a bit different, but the
implementation is completely different. (naming and how versioning works)
Yes, it's different, but it was subject to public discussion , and
none of the few people who had comments disagreed strongly.
With the new and automated 'python(abi) = ...' dependency in FC4 devel,
the solution on the Python side has become even more different, btw.
