Obviously if you don't, fixing the situation up again can be painful.
(see curl version 7.12.0.is.7.11.2-1 or bug #252348 for example).
Is it possible to have some sort of program automatically scan the *.h
files and/or *.so files to ensure that a newer library version really
is compatible? Even if it only detects certain types of changes
(eg. removed symbols) it could still be used as a last check when all
other manual checks pass.
