I have just been thru that part about symbol versioning and -Bsymbolic.
And it was indeed very hard to get right. And I did swear several times
during my answering.

I am - now - very glad that my AM actually took me thru those parts. I
disliked it while it was going on, but I really learned a lot.

I have not yet used that specific part of my knowledge about neither
-Bsymbolic nor symbol versioning, but I have already ended up in
using the stuff I learned on the way.
