Re: library renaming due to changed libstdc++ configuration

I have a question:

What about the libraries that had a SONAME change for the last c102 ->
c2 ABI change but no SONAME change for this one?  In my case it's
libscim8 from scim.  Should I just change it to libscim8a, or to
libscim8c2a regardless to be consistent with others?

I know either way will work, but I'd like to see an official
recommendation so that there are less likely discrepancies between
Debian and Ubuntu/other unofficial packages.
