Andrew Stitcher commented on PROTON-113:

in qpid the *release* version is in a file because several different build 
systems need to refer to it and so there needs to be a authoritative place to 
find it.

That is *not* true for the library so versions because (in theory at least) 
only a single build builds them and so only that build needs to know the 
version number so it can happily be in one place - therefore there is no need 
to put the so versions in a file.
