Re: Using libtool -release versus -version-info breaks packages (ITS#3035)

Reducing ABI changes in released versions is all well and good.
However, some ABI changes are unavoidable.  That's why ABI
versioning exists.  However, at present, we seem to having
problems coming up with a workable scheme.

My question to those who prefer we go back to a version-info
scheme is to provide a suggested numbering scheme (with no
changes to the library names (see requirements in my previous
post)) for 2.2, 2.3, and 2.x (and if you are really forward
thinker, 3.x) branches which support inter-branch ABI changes.
