The one thing I found particularly interesting is:

"If program A requires an old version of a library, and program B
requires a new version, A and B can both be installed and used at the
same time. The system will never refuse to install one program because
some other program is installed."

You gave an example of user-mode-linux and GnuPG.

Isn't this just an example of why properly using sonames is important?
There's no harm in having both libfoo1 and libfoo2 installed, and if you
need to upgrade libfoo1 from 1.0 to 1.1 to support an application,
everything else that needs libfoo 1.0 will continue to work with libfoo
1.1, right?
