I understand your point, but there is certainly a vocal class of Linux
user who doesn't believe in hanging on to "obsolete" stuff. I can't say
I fully understand it myself, but I think it's at the core of why Linux
doesn't yet have a way of gracefully handling multiple versions of the
same dynamic library.
And yeah, I fully sympathize with your situation. I'm sure you're plenty
frustrated with the "why don't you just recompile against the new
version" responses you've no doubt recieved. But, at least someone
provided a compat patch...
