No, we forked the discussion. I think everyone agrees that problem
(same soname) is real. Michael proposes to solve it by building
everything against testing, while Adrian and I assert that building
everything against testing has its own problems. While disagreeing
about the details of our agreement, Adrian and I got into a discussion
of different sonames.
