Just to clarify, per 'release' being 2.1, 2.2, etc.  This forces a
recompile when moving from 2.1.20 to 2.2.1 even if there was no ABI
change.  Of course, chances are pretty good there *was* an ABI change,
so this isn't too big a deal.

As I mentioned in the bug report, and to make sure people understand
here, the 'Debian library packaging guide' is not without it's faults,
quite a few of them in fact.  I've spoken with the author in the past
and recently pointed out a number of issues with it which I plan to
forward on to the author.  It's slowly getting better.
