Yes, the soname bump in F15 was done by mistake, and obviously the
testing caught that, so it was reverted right away.
The bump in F16 was the result of the same mistake, but there I thought
it might as well stay. Except I should have mailed to devel list about
it, I'm sorry I didn't.
So 1.46.1 is there for real, later to be replaced most probably by
1.48.0, or whatever the upstream manages to finish in the mean time.
