There should probably be room for some packages, like 
libgl1-related packages, but for most shared library packaging, 
the freedom of naming convention is only confusing people.

Seeing that 90% of shared library packages seem to 
attach to this convention, it would be better if 100% 
attached to this convention.
Considering that most of the remaining packages 
which do not follow the convention seem to be the
most troublesome packages.
