I've had problems in the past going backwards on major versions of
shared libaries.  The major problem is that if I have binaries that
refer to, then when the major number is reverted back to
5, it is a nop because ld will use for new binaries.

What's wrong with shipping with say in 5.0 and then say in 6.0?
