Then mail the other distro maintainers and upstream, they will listen to you
and it is actually probable you will not have much trouble with the other
Upstream might want a foolproof way to detect whether it should version
symbols or not (I suspect that when using libtool this is a no brainer: tell
libtool to version, and if the platform can't version, it should simply
ignore the request).
Debian can and often does lead the other distros re. versioned symbols. It
is very troubling that openssl is still unversioned, and thus we have to
transition a lot of packages every time a new openssl hits the archive, OR
risk segfaults everywhere.
