Ideally, yes, but given the upstream willingness to incorporate
community-proposed changes, I fear that we may in fact introduce
downstream symbol versioning.
The fact is that in order to reliably provide both library versions, we
*need* the symbol versioning - preferably upstream, but if it won't be
possible, we will have to version downstream (or find another solution
to this problem).

I will contact the upstream about this.
