IMHO, calling libofx0 the old library again is the wrong thing to do.
The reason is explained in the changelog entry for libofx_0.6.2-6.
A package compiled with the old (pre g++ 3.2) libofx0 library will
not work with the "new" libofx0.

I still think the best thing to do would be to keep the old library
name unchanged. This is the kind of stability our users expect.
The new library already gives you the opportunity to get rid of the
ugly c102 suffix, with time, is that is what you are looking for.
