But criticalmass fails (and refused to switch back the screen resolution),
so there actually is a problem.

Somehow I haven't seen a consensus here yet. Do I update the soname or not?
Do I create a separate package or not?
As I understand it, we need another package to have both versions of the
library. But if both are to be installed at the same time, the soname has to
be different. If the soname is different, we break compatibility with
upstream? Another can of worms...
