Understood. However, the upstream might come up with SOVERSION "0" (a
natural choice for libraries under development), resulting in a clash
with SOVERSION of the library shipped by Debian. To avoid such problems
the advice would be against using whatever the upstream might come up to
use, and "0d" seems to be a common solution.
