Debian currently has old packages of the out-of-tree usbip (version
0.1.7), as well as building the current usbip modules from the kernel.
These include a package containing the shared library, libusbip.so, with
I'm preparing to build replacement packages of the usbip userland from
the kernel source tree, but I find that the soname is still
'libusbip.so.0' even though various parts of the interface have been
renamed, changing both API and ABI.
The soname of a shared library must change every time its ABI changes in
an incompatible way
<http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/manual/html_node/Updating-version-info.html>. If you don't want to manage the ABI in this way, I won't package the shared library.
It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.

Just to be clear what I what I want to know: please say whether you
intend to manage the shared library ABI (and change the version now,
to unambiguously identify the current ABI). If so then I will keep
packaging the shared library; if not then I won't.
