I just skimmed the first few chapters od libpkg-guide and some of the
terminology is incorrect or misleading.


This is a library with a name of libsomelibrary-1.2, and a SONAME of "0".

This is actually a library with SONAME 'libsomelibrary-1.2.so.0' (assuming
the SONAME matches the filename).  The '0' is the library major version

In many other places, 'SONAME' is used where 'version number' seems to be

It would be nice if it included example usage for objdump (objdump -x) to
determine the library SONAME.
