Eek. Yeah, that WOULD be a pain.  Any of them in the _* hierarchy?

Still, linker bugs CAN be fixed, and if we can have a roster of the symbols
that must not be versioned, lintian and linda tests added.

For SASL2 2.1.7, I was thinking of versioning like this (idea from 
Antti Salmela <asalmela@iki.fi>):

+SASL2_1.7 {
+    global:
+           sasl_*;
+    local:
+           _*;

This won't work with libs that scatter symbols everywhere in the namespace,
