Re: FWD: C++ library packaging

Joey Hess <joeyh@debian.org> immo vero scripsit:

This reminded me of something, 
we need this migration to gcc-3.1,
and in my impression, C programs are not 
much of a problem because they seem to be binary 
compatible (as far as I can tell from objdump outputs)
but C++ programs are very much different.

If C++ programs are going to require "g++3.1" embedded in 
the shared library names Debian-wide, and 
if we are going to propagate that change to upstream 
authors, we might manage to do g++-3.1 transition
without having to do the "libwhatever<g>" treatment.

We need some discussion, and agreement, and announcement.
