The problem is that if upstream gets "real" later and uses proper
versioning that may clash with our propped-on versioning scheme. This
could be prevented by using sonames that are intentionally different
(e.g. libijt-x.so.0 instead of libijt.so.0)

The other problem with shared libs in the experimental stage is that
they have to raise their major version number pretty often, generating
a stream of libijtN packages, each of which has to be processed twice by
ftpmasters (adding and later removing it).
