Default libgdl soname breakage? (was rawhide report: 20081025 changes)

Grr. As fast as I try to swot down broken deps in rawhide in advance
of the fast-approaching freeze, they keep popping up again. A major
culprit today appears to be:

> libgdl-2.24.0-1.fc10
> --------------------
> * Fri Oct 24 18:00:00 2008 Debarshi Ray <rishi@fedoraproject.org> - 2.24.0-1
> - Version bump to 2.24.0.
> - Rpaths removed by upstream.
> - libgdl-gnome-1.so has been dropped.

which causes broken deps in several packages:

> Broken deps for i386
> ----------------------------------------------------------
> 1:anjuta-2.4.2-1.fc10.i386 requires libgdl-gnome-1.so.0
> gnome-build-0.2.4-1.fc9.i386 requires libgdl-gnome-1.so.0
> gnome-python2-gdl-2.19.1-20.fc10.i386 requires libgdl-gnome-1.so.0

Removing libgdl-gnome-1.so seems to be a rather drastic step,
especially if these apps need it and it isn't provided by any other
package. Is this just a packaging error? I note that Debarshi Ray
who rebuilt libgdl is also the maintainer of 2 of the 3 broken
packages: anjuta and gnome-build, so I assume that he'll hopefully
have plan to fix this breakage.

Otherwise this change should probably be reverted.

Again, please announce any ABI changes on f-d-l in advance.
