The regular libtool versioning scheme is only good for C libraries, i.e.
where you can exactly tell when an interface has been added, changed or
removed. For C++, this is difficult, since you need to take all sorts of
compiler characteristics into account. The basic plan is to increment
micro if the header file did not change, minor if it changed, but
recompiling the app would still work, and major if recompiling wouldn't
help either.
