This is probably a stupid question, but
shouldn't libraries be built with backwards
compatibility in mind?

Or perhaps we could ask Sun to simply build
the SDK with forward compatibility in mind ? :-)

Since you are a Debian developer, i follow
your instructions the next time around. But,
being that i'm lazy, for now i will not try to fix
something that isn't broken.

I just looked at the libraries in my /usr/lib, and
it would appear that many of them are linked to
other libraries. Since i didn't link most of these
myself, i assume this was done by other software
installations. Perhaps i am missing the point???
